The Office of Research on Women’s Health (ORWH), located within the National Institutes of Health, is offering a Science Policy Scholar Travel Award to a junior investigator whose work focuses on women’s health or sex/gender differences, as well as on policy. The award will be available to support travel to the annual meeting of the Organization for the Study of Sex Differences (OSSD) on May 5–8, 2019, in Washington, DC. Attendance at the OSSD meeting will provide an opportunity for a junior investigator to network with leading scientists and clinicians working to advance sex and gender research and policy.

ORWH requests that interested applicants submit an abstract on a policy-related matter connected to women’s health or sex/gender differences for consideration as a poster, oral session, or symposium at the 2019 OSSD annual meeting. A panel of experts will review the abstracts to determine the recipient of the travel award.

One award of up to $3,000 will be made. OSSD will accept abstracts on the OSSD website beginning December 1, 2018, through February 1, 2019.

For more information, including eligibility criteria, see the award announcement.
