Thank you for your dedication to the Winter Conference on Brain Research. Your in-kind donations of time, energy, and intellect give this meeting its invigorating vibe. Your financial contributions in any dollar amount allow this meeting to weather the global pandemic and other catastrophes that may befall us. Every year, travel fellowships depend on your support. On occasion, endowment donations sustain memories of great neuroscientists who have gone before us. This year, submissions to a general fund will enable our meeting organization to maintain a strong financial footing in otherwise uncertain times. Please read below for more details on travel fellowships and endowments, then complete the form below to submit your much-appreciated donation.

Travel Fellowships

Each year we provide travel fellowships supporting the attendance of junior investigators. In particular, these awards encourage the participation of first-time attendees. Many of the recipients return to the conference for years and even decades, ensuring the continued success of the meeting. We bestow the highest-ranked Travel Fellow with the Ann Kelley Travel Award. This is a superior honor and memorializes a great leader in the field of neuroscience. We are pleased to announce the addition of the Conan Kornetsky Travel Award in honor of his great contributions to the field of psychopharmacology.  We raise funds for these fellowships through generous support from private donations, federal grants, and industry sources. Therefore, please consider donating to the travel fellowship fund to help us provide the best support to investigators at the first chapters of their careers who we hope will become continued active participants in the Winter Brain community. Your generosity is the key to the enduring success of our meeting.

Endowment Donations

Donations of any size will help fund the next generation of neuroscientists and are greatly appreciated. To permanently fund a travel award, a gift of at least $50,000.00 is required. This amount might change in future years. If you would like the Winter Brain Executive Committee to approve a named award in honor or memory of a Winter Brain attendee who has made a significant impact on brain research, please consider donating $1,000 for each year this named award should endure (with a minimum $5,000 donation required for a named award).

For your own legacy to live on at the meeting, consider supporting Winter Brain in your estate planning. The donor will be responsible for providing written documentation stating the purpose for the donation and any restrictions that accompany the donation. Winter Brain reserves the right to refuse any gift that is not consistent with the Winter Brain mission and purpose, or if unacceptable restrictions are placed on the gift. Donations will be deposited into an investment fund, to be determined at that time, which allows the best return on investment while still protecting the principal.

If you would like to endow a travel award or scientific award, please contact Winter Brain’s Executive Office at info@winterbrain.org.  Thank you for supporting the progress of neuroscience in such an important way.

Thanks for supporting Winter Brain!
