JSA Junior Scientist Travel Support

JSA awards travel support to graduate students and post docs working at the Jefferson Lab for attendance and/or presentations at national and international conferences and workshops. This support enables junior researchers to receive recognition for their work and helps participants to improve communication skills as they further their careers in the field.

Eligible participants are undergraduate, graduate, or Ph.D. students and post doc’s who are not employees of the Jefferson Lab and are not receiving other JSA Initiatives Fund travel support. Travel funds may cover up to 50% of the travel cost. The traveler is expected to find grants or other support for the remaining cost of travel. Generally, up to $400-$500 may be awarded for local/national meetings and up to $800-$1,000 for international meetings.

Advisors/supervisors should complete the request form for matching travel funds. Requests for only attendance to meetings (no presentation or talk expected) will also be considered. A Travel Fund Committee will review travel requests and reply in a timely manner. Requests may be submitted at any time during the year. For questions or more information, contact one of the PI's Marco Battaglieri, Dipangkar Dutta, or Douglas Higinbotham.

The following workshops and conferences are being funded separately in the FY2018 JSA Initiatives Fund Program and are not eligible to receive support from the Junior Scientist Travel Support Program.
