  • Research Training Award:  This award will provide funds to a NACS student who wishes to visit another lab for an extended period of time, or attend a multi-week training course or workshop, in order to acquire new expertise in technology or methodology that is not available in the home laboratory but is critical for the student’s development as a researcher and scientist.
  • Diversity Conference Supplement:  This award provides funds to a NACS student who would like to attend a diversity conference, such as the Annual Biomedical Research Conference for Minority Students (ABRCMS) or the Society for Advancement of Hispanic/Chicanos and Native Americans in Science (SACNAS).
