The Society for Mathematical Biology provides Landahl Travel Grants to the Annual Meeting for students, postdoctoral fellows, and junior scientists to recognize excellence in mathematical biology and promote greater interaction among mathematical biologists throughout the world. The travel grants provide partial support to attend to the annual meeting, and is typically limited to $500 USD.
Travel award recipients are expected to sign up for the mentoring program in order to optimize their conference experience. It is also customary for recipients of the travel grants to contribute to the meeting by helping at the Society for Mathematical Biology Booth.
Selection of awardees will be based on scientific merit. Students’ advisors are expected to recommend only their very best students and to write letters that provide evidence of each student’s excellent achievements in research.
The following materials are required at the time of online application submission:
The award is currently closed to applications, and will open again in early 2024. Notification will be given shortly after (in advance of the early registration deadline of the meeting).
