SRBR International Travel Fellowships 

Biennial SRBR meetings benefit from the participation of researchers from a wide variety of countries. To encourage the participation of trainees from economically disadvantaged countries, the Society will provide fellowships to cover some of the costs for eligible individuals to attend the 2018 SRBR meeting (May 12-16) in Amelia Island, Florida. Trainees who are from economically disadvantaged countries, as defined by the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) List of Disadvantaged Countries, are strongly encouraged to apply.

Diversity Travel Award 

Since its first meeting in 1988, SRBR has welcomed and benefited from researchers with a common interest in biological timing from widely varying backgrounds, disciplines and countries.  To continue to encourage participation from a diversity of researchers, the Society has been awarded funds from the NIH to cover some of the costs of eligible individuals to attend the 2018 SRBR meeting (May 12-16).  Researchers with disabilities or who identify as coming from backgrounds underrepresented in chronobiology as defined by NIH regardless of nationality are strongly encouraged to apply.
