The Ecoss Travel and Research Awards Program (TRAP) now includes two distinct categories: travel and research. Travel awards are designed to advance the applicant’s professional development by enabling activities such as attending a scientific meeting, visiting a lab for specialized training, collaborating on proposal development, or traveling to a research site. Research awards are designed to advance the applicant’s professional development by providing support to conduct an experiment that was not planned, or to obtain equipment, supplies, software, or analyses that enable innovative research that would not otherwise happen.
The deadline for Fall 2019 proposals is October 31. For details, see the RFP.
