Psychonomic Society and Women in Cognitive Science Travel and Networking Awards for Junior Scientists
2019 Psychonomic Society Annual Meeting  |  Montréal, Québec, Canada  |  November 14-17, 2019
The 2019 submission deadline is August 26, 2019

Presenting one’s research at professional meetings such as the Psychonomic Society Annual Meeting is an important way for individuals to become known in the professional community and to develop collaborative relationships with other professionals in the field. Given the relatively short time frame of the tenure period, it is essential that individuals begin to appear at professional meetings early in their careers. Therefore, the purpose of this award is to provide funds for graduate students, postdocs, and assistant professors to participate in and network at the 2019 Meeting of the Psychonomic Society, Montréal, Québec, Canada  on November 14-17, 2019.

Funds are available for up to 5 awards of $1,000 each.

Eligibility
Applicants must be:

  • A woman scientist of any nationality
  • A graduate student, postdoctoral fellow, or assistant professor
  • Presenting a talk or poster at the 2019 Psychonomic Society Annual Meeting

Application
To apply, send the following to the Travel Award Committee:

  • Evidence of an accepted paper or poster.
  • A networking plan. This plan should identify one or preferably two senior scientists with whom the applicant would network at the conference; although only women scientists are eligible for this award, the targeted senior scientist(s) can be of any gender. The plan should also include the specific goals to be accomplished with targeted scientist(s) (e.g., develop a collaboration, exchange research ideas, receive input on experiments, a grant proposal, or a manuscript), and should describe the relevance of this to the applicant's research program. The plan should be approximately 2 pages long (single-spaced, using a 12-point font).
  • Provide evidence of agreement from the networking target(s) to carry out the plan.
  • A current CV

About Women in Cognitive Science (WiCS)
Women in Cognitive Science was founded in 2001, with the goal of improving the visibility of women scientists, by fostering an environment that welcomes and nurtures young women scholars who wish to contribute to the fields within Psychology and Cognitive Science that traditionally attract fewer women than men (e.g., cognitive science, experimental psychology, and cognitive neuroscience). Women in Cognitive Science also aims to contribute to the professional development of scholars throughout their career, to facilitate the creation of a network that will provide contacts and connections to other women in science, and to improve the visibility of women by ensuring their presence on policymaking committees and editorial boards.
