SSR will contribute up to $500 to support each of 20 Trainee members enrolled in the Continental North America (United States and Canada) and up to $1000 to support each of 5 international (non-North American) enrolled Trainee members as a contribution towards the costs of conference registration, travel, and accommodation. Applicants will be judged on abstract quality and volunteer service to the scientific community.
