Travel Awards

The Histochemical Society awards programs seek to recognize projects and applicants that explore novel in situ tissue imaging and analytic techniques, including, but not limited to immunohistochemistry/immunofluorescence and in situ hybridization, or those that strongly incorporate these techniques. Demonstrating use of such techniques is required to be eligible for the award. Travel award applications require a resume/CV and a recommendation letter.  The recommendation letter should include a brief statement of institutional support for the candidate (eg: mentoring, financial, or career development.)  If an abstract has been submitted to the event, the travel award applicant should include the abstract with the award application as well. HCS is generous, offering numerous travel awards throughout the year, but we strictly adhere to our deadlines to ensure fairness for all applicants.
