Travel Awards

A prominent feature of this meeting is that we provide up to 25 travel awards to domestic and international students to come to St. Louis and learn with us. Support will be provided for travel expenses and hotel accommodations to attend the meeting and present a poster. This is a wonderful opportunity for students at all levels to interact with world class scientists, technologists, and practitioners and forge connections with others working to uncover the scientific underpinnings of mindfulness.


These travel awards can go to students at all levels of their education including: undergraduates, Masters students, PhD students, and post-doctoral fellows. We are also interested supporting science-oriented mindfulness practitioners to attend the meeting, who may be interested in forging collaborative partnerships with researchers. The goal of these travel awards is to support and facilitate excellent science to be conducted across the globe and across cultures. Please note that we will prioritize applications from participants in underrepresented communities and from those who would not be able to attend this meeting without financial support.
