SBAG Early Career Travel Grant

19th Meeting of the NASA Small Bodies Assessment Group
June 13–14, 2018
College Park, MD

Additional logistics information will be released closer to the meeting

Early career travel support: We are planning to offer limited U.S. travel support for early career scientists to participate in the SBAG 19 meeting, to be held at the University of Maryland in College Park, MD on June 13-14, 2018. Interested undergraduate students, graduate students, postdocs, and other early career scientists (within 3 years of PhD/MS/BS) should submit a letter and a CV to SBAG Early Career Secretary Hannah Susorney ([email protected]) by COB (5 pm Eastern time) April 27th, 2018. Included in the letter, which must not exceed 2 pages, should be a demonstration of financial need and an explanation of how the applicant’s work relates to the purposes of the SBAG. The letter and CV should be combined into a single PDF document for submission by e-mail attachment. Recipients of travel support will be expected to give a short presentation (~10-15 minutes) of their SBAG-relevant work at the SBAG 19 meeting.

Lightning Talks: We are providing time on the agenda for early-career scientists and engineers present at the meeting to introduce themselves and their research to the community. The talks will be 3 minutes each. If you are interested in giving a lightning talk, please contact the early-career secretary Hannah Susorney ([email protected]). Please encourage students and postdocs that you know to participate!
