Overview:

NOTE: Applications for funding are accepted on a rolling basis. We encourage you to apply early in the SOT budget year as funds are limited. 

The Society of Toxicology (SOT) solicits requests for funding for toxicologists to expand the awareness of toxicology and promote toxicology careers through the interaction of toxicologists with students who may not otherwise have the opportunity to learn about the discipline.

Presenters may select from the SOT Introduction to Toxicology slide sets and SOT can provide career brochures. A ToxScholar submits a report and writes a post for the Communiqué detailing his or her experiences to help SOT track the impact of the program and to encourage others to carry out ToxScholar visits.

Domestic ToxScholar Outreach Grants

SOT provides funding for SOT members to make presentations about toxicology and toxicology careers to undergraduate audiences, especially at campuses that do not offer toxicology in their curricula. The toxicologist will present lectures and career information to the appropriate student audiences and the visit is coordinated with a faculty member. Faculty can submit an application for a specific speaker. Faculty members or student groups can request that SOT assist with a speaker match.

The Education Committee reviews proposals for visits to any undergraduate institution. 

The Committee on Diversity Initiatives reviews proposals for visits to institutions with a large proportion of students who are members of racial/ethnic groups under-represented in the sciences.

In addition, we would like information about visits made by SOT members without requests for travel support. 

You can learn more about this opportunity by visiting the funder's website.
