Director’s Travel Award to CPDD

Revised December 2017

The National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) is accepting applications for the Director’s Travel Award program to help defray the cost of attending the Annual CPDD Meeting on June 9-14, 2018, in San Diego, California. NIDA anticipates supporting approximately 20 awards in the amount of $1,000 each.

Eligibility: To be eligible for a NIDA Director’s Travel Award, the applicant must be a NIDA-supported NRSA fellow, NRSA trainee, Diversity Supplement recipient or Mentored Career Development Award PI. This award is also contingent upon attendance at the NIDA Grant-Writing/Career Workshop, held in conjunction with the CPDD Meeting. Selection for this travel award will automatically enroll you in this workshop. Preference will be given to junior investigators presenting at the CPDD conference, and to those who have not previously received this award.
