These scholarships cover registration costs for any GCC2015 events the recipients sign up for, and also covers lodging during those events in the official conference lodging on the nearby UEA campus. The scholarships do not cover travel or other expenses.

To apply for a scholarship qualifying applicants need to

  1. Submit a poster abstract. The deadline is May 1
  2. Have a faculty member / PI send a letter of recommendation to the Galaxy Community Fund Board no later than May 15.
  3. Submit an application form, no later than May 1.
