Conference and Travel Awards

DeLill Nasser Award for Professional Development in Genetics

Graduate student and postdoctoral GSA members are eligible to apply for this award to support travel costs for national and international meetings and laboratory courses. The award is named for long-time GSA member and National Science Foundation Program Director in Eukaryotic Genetics, DeLill Nasser. It is given in recognition of the critical role she played in research and for her love of genetics. Visit the award website for more information. Applications will open in early October 2018.

GSA Poster Awards

Awards will be given for the best poster presentations by GSA student members. If you are a Genetics Society of America member, the first AND presenting author on the abstract, and an undergraduate or graduate student you may nominate your poster for an award.
