Online Conference Funding – PostDocs/Graduate Students

The Cornell Center for Immunology (CCFI) and Cornell Institute of Host-Microbe Interactions and Disease (CIHMID) recognize that the global covid-19 pandemic has greatly reduced opportunities for graduate students and postdoctoral researchers to attend scientific conferences over the 2020 and 2021 calendar years. Conferences are invaluable venues for making connections with other researchers in your field and for presenting your work to gain exposure. Fortunately, many meetings have adopted alternative online formats in 2021. CCFI and CIHMID are offering a joint scholarship program for graduate students and postdocs working in labs that belong to our communities. Read on and apply.
