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).
Conditions of the Award
Successful awardees must commit to:
◦ Participating in all ABRCMS 2014 activities from Wednesday afternoon through Saturday evening
◦ Participating in an ABRCMS-LINK focus group during ABRCMS
◦ Exploring and identifying potential collaborations with undergraduate faculty
◦ Engaging in an online community with other ABRCMS and/or LINK participants
◦ Completing surveys and contributing to discussions about the ABRCMS program
◦ Providing a post-meeting research profile for inclusion in a post-ABRCMS newsletter
Candidates must be:
◦ Active tenure-track or tenured research scientists engaged in the research priorities of NSF (NSF funded OR eligible for NSF funding)
◦ 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.

American Society for Cell Biology Committee for Postdocs and Students Outreach Awards
COMPASS Outreach Awards are intended to provide funds to ASCB members to promote science outreach projects--like visits to labs for students, organizing science fairs, or any other ideas for engaging the public.
In order for government funding of science to continue, we scientists must help people understand the importance of our work. For this reason, COMPASS is pleased to announce Awards for Outreach. These awards, of up to $1,000, will help ASCB members engage with local schools, science fairs, and society. We want to help you promote research, get the public excited about cell biology and improve the perception of scientists in your own local efforts.
The award can be used for food and refreshments, materials, equipment, books or brochures, transportation, prizes, etc.
To apply for this outreach award, you must be an active ASCB member, with priority given to Student and Postdoc members. Moreover, your event will have the support of a COMPASS member, who will be a liaison between you and the ASCB.
If you already have an idea of an outreach activity for your community, please proceed to the application requirements below. If not, we would like to encourage you to try one of these outreach ideas:
Bring students to your lab! Give a classroom of kids a full science experience by showing them where science is done and who does it.
Host a "Cell Biology Day" at your university, community center, church or any other venue that will draw public participation.
Are you judging a science fair? Ask for funds to give a special ASCB prize to a cell biology project.
A description of the proposed event, answering the following questions:
What are goals of the event?
Who is the event for?
What will you do during the event?
When will the event happen?
Where will you host the event?
How will the event benefit the local community/why do you think it's important?
What is the message you would like your attendees to leave with?
