The 46th Annual Meeting of the Japan Neuroscience Society (JNS) offers Travel Awards to enthusiastic, leading, non-Japanese neuroscientists traveling from abroad to present high-quality papers at the meeting. Applications from young principal investigators and senior postdoctoral fellows, also from Asian-Pacific countries are especially encouraged.
The amount of the funding for travel will be between 40,000–150,000 JPY per award.
The 46th Annual Meeting of the JNS will pay attention regarding the 2022, 2021, and 2020 Travel Awardees whose travels were canceled and who were unable to visit Japan due to COVID-19 pandemic. Should the 2022, 2021, and 2020 Travel Awardees submit a NEW abstract for consideration for the 2023 application, we would be happy to consider as a candidate of the award. In all cases, the excellence of the submitted scientific abstract will be an absolute prerequisite.
Applicants for Travel Award (TA) need not register to participate in the annual meeting at the time of application for TA. This is because awardees will be exempt from the registration fee for the annual meeting, while unsuccessful applicants need to register with payment; therefore, successful and unsuccessful applicants are under different registration category. TA applicants can make a registration once results decided. Unsuccessful applicants can also submit an abstract for the annual meeting until the submission deadline, February 8, 2023 at 12:00 in JST, after results decided, if they hope to do so.
For details, please follow the TA application instruction.
All presenters need to hold membership of the Japan Neuroscience Society (JNS); however, TA applicants need not be a member of the JNS at the time of application for TA. This is because awardees will be exempt from the admission and first year's annual membership fees, while unsuccessful applicants need to pay for them. After results announced, membership application instruction will be sent to awardees. Once the awardees received, they can make membership applications by following the instruction. On the other hand, unsuccessful applicants who intend to submit abstracts make presentation at the annual meeting need to make general application for membership.
*Applicants from the following countries must apply for the Travel Award through their home Neuroscience Affiliations: China, South Korea, India, and Iran.
Each society has set their own deadline date and guideline. Applicants shall follow their instructions.
