Call for abstracts
for students and young scientists
ESA offers up to 10 grants to assist students and
young scientists from ESA member states to participate
to the "Mars atmosphere modelling and observations" workshop.
The NASA Mars Program Office has announced that travel funding will be made available for as many as three students who are U.S. citizens or legal residents, with Mars-related interests, to attend the 4th International Workshop on the Mars Atmosphere: Modeling and Observations in Paris, France, Feb. 8-11, 2011. An application must be submitted by December 22, 2010 to be considered for this funding. NASA Headquarters will make the selections and students will be notified no later than January 13, 2011.
Reimbursable costs include transportation (airfare, mileage to/from airport, parking, rental car) and lodging/per diem allowance. In most cases, actual expenses will exceed the funding provided.
Note: Students who are depending on travel assistance should not pay the registration fee or make travel arrangements until they have been notified that they have received an award. If you are requesting funds to travel to the meeting from outside the U.S., you should also wait to register until you have successfully completed NASA's foreign travel approval process. Failure to comply with this requirement may prohibit reimbursement.
Travel costs up to $2000 will be reimbursed according to JPL/government-specified allowances. For reference, hotel/per diem rates can be found at www.gsa.gov (see per diem).
Students must be U.S. citizens or legal residents.
Students must be enrolled at a university at the time of the conference or the semester immediately following the conference (if during break).
Students wishing to apply for this assistance must submit the electronic student travel funding application form by December 22, 2010.
Interested students with questions are encouraged to contact Charles Budney (Mars Program Office, firstname.lastname@example.org or 818-354-3981).
