We encourage students to apply for the NIDCD Student Travel Fellowship.
Any student who is active in an academic program and has earned authorship on a paper to be submitted to the CAC can apply for an NIDCD Student Fellowship, though we will limit the number of fellowships that any single applicant can receive.
There are three parts to the application. Part 1 demographic and other information requested as part of the regular CAC abstract submission process. Part 2 is a brief form that provides basic assurances from the applicant and the applicant’s advisor or department chair. Part 3 asks for a brief written statement. For this statement, students need to provide a brief statement that includes: research interests; research experience and products; how research fits in your career goals; why you want a student fellowship; what you would offer as a student fellow; and anything else relevant to your application. Applicants should read and complete each part carefully, and follow the instructions for submitting them. Provided is an example Research Statement for you to review and an example abstract for submission to CAC.
