Travel scholarships for the 2013 Conference on Implantable Auditory Prostheses for UK scientists

As has been done every 2 years since 1999, the charity Deafness Research
UK has agreed to provide some financial support for a small number of
U.K.-based Ph.D. students and recent post-docs to attend the 2013
Conference on Implantable Auditory Prostheses at Lake Tahoe, California from 14-19 July:


Up to three travel awards of £750 each are available. Clearly, this amount will not cover the total expenses, but should provide an important supplement to other funding.

Those eligible to apply are Ph.D. students and recent post-doctoral
students at UK institutions. Preference will be given to candidates
involved in cochlear implant research or attached to a cochlear implant
programme. Please send applications to me by email on or before 8 March.

This should include a brief CV, a statement of research interests, a
statement of the potential benefits of attending the conference, and a
supporting letter from the supervisor or other senior colleague. It is a
condition of the funding that a brief report be sent to Defeating
Deafness shortly after the conference. If you are considering applying, I would appreciate a short message right away so I can gauge the demand.
A decision will be made by the beginning of April.

Please forward this message to anyone you think might be interested.
