TREC Educational Workshop Funds

TREC Educational Workshops funds must be used for the purpose of travel to, accommodations for, and attendance at TREC Educational Workshop (May 21, 2014), in conjunction with the May 19‐21 CPHHD‐TREC Joint Symposium.

Two missions of the TREC initiative are to provide training opportunities and to facilitate meaningful collaborations across geographically separate sites to promote transdisciplinary research among early career investigators* and others. In support of these missions, the TREC Coordination Center has established a $40,000 TREC Coordination Center (CC) May 2014 Media Communications Educational Workshop Training Fund that will provide financial support for eligible TREC investigators to attend the May 21, 2014 TREC Educational Workshop.

Awards to qualified applicants are on a first come first serve basis, until the available funds are awarded. If funds are still available, the last day to apply for funds is April 25, 2014.

*For the TREC CC May 2014 Media Communications Workshop Training Fund, TREC ‘early career investigators’ and established/more senior TREC investigators may apply. TREC ‘early career investigators’ include students and individuals at the post‐doctoral level who are early in their scientific career (e.g., new assistant professors who have not yet received their own R01). Established TREC investigators include Center PIs, Project PIs, and Core Leaders. For applications of equal training merit, priority will be given to TREC ‘early career investigators’.
