Heiligenberg Student Travel Awards


Heiligenberg Student Travel Awards are awarded annually to qualified students who wish to present work in the field of neuroethology at national and international scientific meetings.  The award is given in honor of Walter Heiligenberg, who was a distinguished neuroethologist, and a pioneer in the field. Heiligenberg made seminal contributions to understanding the neural mechanisms underlying the jamming avoidance response of weakly electric fish.
Qualifications and Applying
Both the student and the student’s mentor must be ISN members by the deadline of application (to be decided by the selection committee). Applicants must be registered graduate students at a university and must plan on presenting their work at the conference. Priorities will be given to applicants who have demonstrated academic excellence and research potential as evidenced by the abstract of the work to be presented and the recommendation letters. Applicants with demonstrated financial need also will be considered for these awards. Preference will be given to applicants who have not previously received this award.
Applications are no longer being accepted for 2017. The next deadline for applications is April 30, 2018. Results will be announced in time to use the funds for the 2018 Congress in Brisbane, which will be the focus of the 2018 awards, but applicants should take care to observe the regular registration and abstract submission deadlines. 
To apply, fill out the application form below and have letters of recommendation from two ISN members submitted to Terry Leatherman at tleatherman@allenpress.com
