The goal of this award program is to provide core personnel with funds to help them attend the NERLSCD annual meeting. Each award consists of a free registration and reimbursement for up to $200 in lodging or travel expenses. Most meals are provided during the meeting.

Eligibility requirements: Applicants must be currently employed in a core facility or officially associated with core facilities (e.g., as a core facility center administrator) at an academic or non-profit institution that is located in the focus region of the NERLSCD ABRF Chapter (i.e., the Northeast region of the USA, including the states of ME, MA, NH, CT, RI, VT, NY, NJ, PA, and DE and neighboring Canadian provinces). Preference will be given to applicants who will be new NERLSCD annual meeting attendees, especially those from an institution that has not had a prior presence at a NELSCD meeting and to applicants who will be poster presenters at the NERLSCD 2016 meeting.

The NERLSCD Travel Award Committee includes Chris Lytle, (Dartmouth), Luellen Fletcher (University of Pennsylvania) and Stuart Levine (Massachusetts Institute of Technology)
