Travel Awards for MONA's 2019 Biennial Conference on Perinatal Mental Health
A limited number of Travel Awards are available for the Conference. The Travel Award Program is specifically designed for graduate students, medical students, residents or post-doctoral trainees in a field relevant to perinatal mental health. The goals of the program are to expose awardees to the breadth of opportunities available to clinical researchers, introduce them to investigators from other institutions, and facilitate the establishment of a peer group for the Travel Awardees.
Selected awardees will receive complimentary registration, a $500 travel stipend and a certificate acknowledging their participation in the program.
