ASV 2020 ASVCares Awards

In an effort to remove barriers to attending the annual ASV meeting, ASV offers need-based fellowship assistance to support child/dependent care. The ASVCares fellowship is intended to offset additional childcare/dependent care costs associated with conference attendance, rather than routine childcare/dependent care costs that would typically be paid for normal work hours. Applicants must be a member of ASV and have one or more dependents under 18 years of age or a special-needs dependent. Application for an ASVCares fellowship must be submitted online to ASV by April 17, 2020 through the ASV Member portal and includes a statement of need for support and a budget justification.
Deadline: April 17, 2020

ASV 2020 Travel Awards

The ASV is invested in the success of our trainees, and one way we demonstrate this is through our travel awards program. For the 2019 meeting, the ASV donated $145,000 for 258 travel awards to students, postdoctoral associates, teachers, and global scholars. The application details for the following three programs are described below. More information on travel awards.

  • Global Virology Scholar Travel Award – deadline January 13, 2020

  • Student and Postdoc Travel Award – deadline February 3, 2020

New in 2020! Onsite Daycare

ASV is committed to having the annual meeting accessible to all interested virologists. For ASV2020, ASV has contracted with KiddieCorp (kiddiecorp.com), a national firm that has provided onsite daycare for meetings of national organizations since 1986.
