The Young Investigator award supports emerging researchers in the neuroethology community and is presented at the International Congress of Neuroethology.
The award recognizes doctoral graduate students and early post-doctoral fellows who have shown outstanding promise and have made a significant research contribution in any aspect of the field of neuroethology. Our emphasis in these awards is on young investigators that represent the ISN of tomorrow.
Recipients receive up to US$1,200 to reimburse travel expenses.
