What is the JoCN Travel Fellowship

The annual meeting of the Cognitive Neuroscience Society typically enjoys robust attendance from individuals from institutions based in the US and Canada, Europe, and Northeast Asia. To help promote geographic diversity in our science,  the Journal of Cognitive Neuroscience has teamed up with CNS to create the JoCN Travel Fellowship, which provides a travel stipend of $3000, plus waived conference registration and waived poster submission fee, to one trainee from each of four regions that have been underrepresented at the CNS conference: Oceania and Southeast Asia; South Asia; Africa; and Western Hemisphere (minus US and Canada).
