Annual Biomedical Research Conference for Minority Students LINK Travel Award
Application Deadline: October 3, 2014
ASM-NSF LINK Program
The ASM-NSF Leaders Inspiring Networks and Knowledge (LINK) Program seeks to connect active research investigators and undergraduate educators interested in broadening participation in science and building interdisciplinary collaborations that benefit all partners and contribute to discovery and understanding while promoting teaching and learning.
The LINK Program is specifically interested in supporting collaborations involving trainees and early-career scientsts underrepresented nationally in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) to succeed in bioscience education, research and careers.
The Program goals are to:
◦ Strengthen connections between researchers and educators to advance science and student learning
◦ Support interdisciplinary collaborations that actively engage educators and their students in scientific research
◦ Create opportunities for increased exposure to and success in emerging and interdisciplinary areas of molecular, cellular and microbial biosciences
◦ Encourage sustainable collaborator networks and effective mentoring practices
◦ Broaden participation of the STEM workforce
The program fosters activities and communications to develop a robust community of scientists actively engaged in mentoring, networking, and collaborations. It leverages two longstanding, national STEM education conference - the Annual Biomedical Research Conference for Minority Students (ABRCMS) and the Annual ASM Conference for Undergraduate Educators (ASMCUE).
Two leading strategies help achieve the Program goals:
1. Creating avenues to connect established research investigators with advanced trainees, educators, and early-career scientists at ABRCMS and ASMCUE
2. Supporting collaborations among research scientists, educators and/or advanced trainees that are mutually beneficial, well planned and sustained with ongoing networks and mentoring.
To address the first strategy of connecting the research community with faculty, future faculty and early-career scientists, the Program provides support for scientists actively engaged in research to attend and participate in ABRCMS.
Active researchers who wish to identify and connect with mid- or early-career and future faculty instrumental in student learning in undergraduate biology should apply for the ABRCMS-LINK Travel Award. Support is up to and not exceeding $1,500. The ABRCMS-LINK Travel Award is supported by the American Society for Microbiology (ASM) and National Science Foundation (NSF).

◦ Active tenure-track or tenured research scientists interested in developing collaborations with faculty, early-career faculty and/or future faculty
◦ U.S citizens or U.S permanent residents
Criteria for Selection
All applications will be evaluated for the following criteria:
◦ Demonstrated and potential commitment to broadening participation in STEM research and education
◦ Demonstrated and potential commitment to collaborate in interdisciplinary activities and networks and/or differing student populations and educational approaches
Allowable expenses include those for ABRCMS registration, airfare, ground transportation and/or hotel expenses up to and not exceeding $1,500. Non-allowable expenses include meals as they are provided at the conference. The award is a travel subsidy presented upon completion of travel and submission of receipts.
