Win one of two $250 PeerJ Travel Grants – fund your next research trip or conference attendance!
As sponsors of the ARCS: Advancing Research Communication & Scholarship currently taking place today and tomorrow in Philadelphia, we specifically asked the organizers that those funds go towards helping an early career researcher with their travel fees to be able to attend the event.
This got us thinking about all the times in our early careers when we wanted to attend a conference, or meet with our peers working on exciting projects but didn’t have the full funds to enable us to do so. Therefore we have created two PeerJ Travel Grants of $250 enabling you to add additional funding towards travel for scientific or research purposes of your choosing.
To be eligible for one of the PeerJ Travel Grants all we ask is that you follow these simple criteria:
- One $250 PeerJ Travel Grant will be awarded to an existing follower of @thePeerJ on Twitter (must be a follower before Monday 27th April). Your tweets must include #PeerJTravelGrant and mention what you’d like to use the funds for.
- The second $250 PeerJ Travel Grant will be awarded to a NEW follower of @thePeerJ on Twitter (from today until Friday May 29th when the submission for the PeerJ travel grant closes). Your tweets must include #PeerJTravelGrant and mention what you’d like to use the funds for.
We wanted to create two travel grants to ensure that those who have already been following PeerJ on Twitter are rewarded for their loyalty, but also that any new followers are in with a chance of receiving a travel grant too. This means you can encourage your friends and colleagues to enter and you both may be in with a chance of winning. You can’t say fairer than that!
Just re-tweet our Tweet about the PeerJ Travel Grant and let your friends and colleagues know straight away!
The winners will be announced on Monday June 1st after the award closes on Friday May 29th.
Winners will be chosen at random from our Twitter followers and will be chosen by PeerJ Co-founders Jason Hoyt and Peter Binfield. Payments will be arranged individually with the winners of the PeerJ Travel Grants, and the funds must be used for travel for scientific or research purposes.
