Travel Award 2019
The journal Non-Coding RNA (ISSN 2311-553X, https://www.mdpi.com/journal/ncrna) will offer a travel award for Ph.D. students planning to attend an academic meeting held between May and December 2019.
All attendees planning a poster/oral presentation on non-coding RNAs will be eligible for this award. The applications will be assessed by an evaluation committee presided by George A. Calin (Editor-in-Chief of Non-Coding RNA), and a prize of 800 CHF will be granted on the basis of the presentation’s clarity and scientific significance.
- Abstract submitted to a relevant conference.
- Applicant’s curriculum vitae, along with a one-page statement from the candidate describing his/her research interests and possible career plans.
- Recommendation letter from by his/her mentor.
The award will sponsor Ph.D. students to attend an upcoming meeting, while presenting an abstract as a first author. The stipend will be given on a competitive basis. This grant is restricted to a one-time acceptance. Attending a conference directed to non-coding RNA research will be a plus. The awardee will have to present proof of registration as well as attendance in order to receive the award.
Please present your applications using the online submission system no later than 31 March 2019. The awardee will be announced in April 2019. Please visit our website for additional details: https://www.mdpi.com/journal/ncrna/awards
