Program DetailsThe 2020 ASM NGS Conference is offering 2 travel awards: the ASM NGS Student Travel Award and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation Lower Middle Income Countries Research Travel Award. Because 2020 ASM NGS is virtual, these travel awards will help offset conference registration fees.
ASM NGS Student Travel AwardThe student and early-career travel awardees are selected by the ASM NGS Program Committee on the basis of the scientific quality of the submitted abstracts by students and early career scientists. Funding from this award is meant only to defray costs for the meeting. Abstract submitters may need to obtain additional funding from other sources.
Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation Lower Middle Income Countries Research Travel AwardThe BMGF LMIC Research Travel Award will be selected by the ASM NGS Program Committee based on the eligibility requirements and scientific merit (not fiscal need). The award winners will be invited to give a short talk on their work in one of the conference sessions or recorded ePoster sessions.
