Dear #DisplayName#,

Early-Career Investigator Travel Awards (ECITAs) are now available for the upcoming conference season.

These awards support scientists from diverse backgrounds to attend a conference of their choice and present their work among field leaders while providing essential networking and career-development opportunities. Attendance at top tier scientific conferences is critical at this career stage, enabling emerging researchers to:

  1. Establish new collaborations
  2. Gain exposure for their research
  3. Network informally with colleagues and field leaders
  4. Meet with prospective postdoctoral candidates

The ECITA program is part of the Keystone Symposia Diversity in Life Science Portfolio, which aims to bolster diversity among the life-science research community. At Keystone Symposia, we are committed to supporting equity, diversity, and inclusion at our conferences, and within the life-science workforce at large, such that research and medicine include and reflect the full spectrum of perspectives, insights, and needs of a broad community.

Please help us spread the word about this valuable career-advancement opportunity for scientists from underrepresented populations via email, social media, and other communication channels.

Please note:
Applications are considered on a rolling basis. However, regular abstract deadlines* apply for those wanting to be considered for a short talk or poster presentation.

Deadlines for late-February conferences are fast approaching, so don't delay!
