Society for Prevention Research ECPN Scholarship Program is
now accepting applications (http://www.preventionresearch.org/ecpnscholarship2008.pdf)
for the 2008 Annual Meeting in San Francisco, CA.
All applications are due by Friday,
March 28, 2008.
Program Purpose: The SPR/ECPN Scholarship
Program is designed to provide support for researchers early
in their careers to attend the Annual Meeting of the Society
for Prevention Research. (See http://www.preventionresearch.org/meeting.php
for annual meeting details and registration).
The meeting and these scholarships are funded in part through
an R-13 grant funded by several institutes of the National
Institutes of Health (NIH).
Eligibility: Eligible candidates
must be members of SPR. Candidates may submit membership applications
at the same time as their scholarship application (https://secure.preventionresearch.org/membershipapplication.php).
Candidates will be selected by the ECPN Steering Committee
based on need and whether or not the candidate will be presenting
at the annual meeting.
Awards: In past years, we have been
able to accommodate the majority of ECPN'ers who applied with
some amount of support, typically granted as a "lump
sum" to cover costs associated with travel, lodging,
meals, and registration. So that we can assist as many people
as possible, the awards are generally limited to $500 for
domestic members. ECPN will make a concerted effort to notify
applicants via e-mail of awards by April 9, 2008.
Please note that eligible applicants may also apply for the
SPR Minority Scholarship Program. However, only one or the
other award, not both, may potentially be awarded.
application deadline is 5:00
