MSC Travel Grants

The Migraine Science Collaborative wants to highlight the work of scientists early in their careers. Migraine is a complex disease that crosses into many specialties and therefore scientists from many disciplines can make meaningful contributions to the understanding of this syndromic condition.

The Migraine Science Collaborative Travel Grants reimburse travel expenses for those who have had their abstract for a presentation or poster accepted at a conference and are attending that conference.

There will be 12 Travel Grants per year. Those who receive a Travel Grant will have their answers to a number of questions about their work (rather than their abstract) posted on the MSC website. Travel grant recipients will also be acknowledged in the MSC monthly e-newsletter.

Value of Grant: Limited to $500 USD.

Note: The deadline for travel grants to the upcoming AHS meeting has passed.
