About this funder:



Founded in 1961, the Society of Toxicology (SOT) is a professional and scholarly organization of scientists from academic institutions, government, and industry representing the great variety of scientists who practice toxicology in the US and abroad. The Society’s mission is to create a safer and healthier world by advancing the science and increasing the impact of toxicology.

The goal of the Edward W. Carney Trainee Award Fund is to encourage education and training in reproductive and developmental toxicology. The fund will be used to support graduate student or postdoctoral scholar travel to meetings that offer significant educational opportunities in the field of Reproductive and Developmental Toxicology, such as the annual meetings of SOT and the Society for Birth Defects Research and Prevention (BDRP).

This awards is made possible by the Edward W. Carney Trainee Travel Award Endowment Fund.

The submission deadline for travel to the BDRP Annual Meeting is February 15th and deadline for travel to the Society of Toxicology Annual Meeting is November 15th. If applying for travel support to another relevant meeting, applicants should submit their application to either of the February or November deadline prior to the desired meeting.
