The Executive Committee of COMPRES announces the availability of travel scholarships for those graduate students presenting abstracts for poster presentations at the 2011 Annual Meeting of COMPRES.

These travel scholarships will provide full or partial travel scholarships of up to $500 each for travel expenses incurred in attending the Annual Meeting. Reimbursement will be via travel vouchers submitted with receipts at or following the meeting.

 To be eligible for a travel scholarship, the graduate student must do the following:

1) Apply for consideration for a travel scholarship via email to  Chong-Hwey Fee by Wednesday, May 11, 2011.

This application should include the following:
