Travel Support


NASA has agreed to provide some limited travel support for participants to the Bioastronomy meeting. Criteria for selection includes financial need and acceptance of a paper (oral or poster) for presentation. We are awaiting the final written approval for this support. The program committee will make decisions on travel support applications during April - or as soon as practical after we get the official notification from NASA about the availability of funds. To apply for travel support, please follow the application guidelines below and submit this information to the Program committee by emailing it to John Rummel (jrummel@mbl.edu), including a copy to Karen Meech (meech@ifa.hawaii.edu) no later than May 1, 1999 .

Application Guidelines

  • Provide your Name, Address, Telephone/Fax and email
  • Provide the lowest cost airfare (and airlines) from your city of origin to Hawaii
  • Provide your abstract number of your accepted paper
  • Provide a brief justification as to why you need support. Include a discussion of other sources of funding you have for the meeting and why these will not cover the cost of your trip.
  • Provide a statement about any matching funds available from your country or institution.
