EPI Early Career Travel Award

Updated:Oct 23,2013

Sponsored by the Council on Epidemiology and Prevention's Early Career Committee

AHA Scientific Council Travel Awards recognize promising and outstanding investigators in the early stages of their careers and provide travel assistance for trainees and early career investigators to participate in AHA scientific meetings.   

By providing travel support to early career investigators who wish to attend the Annual EPI/NPAM Conference, the EPI Early Career Travel Award honors outstanding new researchers, facilitates active participation in the annual meeting and highlights the benefits of ongoing membership in the AHA at the early career level.  These travel awards will be presented to candidates wishing to attend the Epidemiology and Prevention/Nutrition, Physical Activity and Metabolism 2014 Scientific Sessions in San Francisco, Calif., March 18-21, 2014.

Award Information

  • Candidates must be individuals in clinical, research or educational training programs.
  • Submission of an abstract for the conference is preferred but not required.
