Thank you for your interest in the Winter Conference on Brain Research. Over the last fifty years, the Conference has seen the turnover of generations of scientists who have propagated science, built collaborations and forged enduring relationships.
We are proud of our history and are committed to supporting the next generation of neuroscientists. To do so, each year we provide travel fellowships supporting the attendance of junior investigators. In particular, these awards encourage the participation of first-time attendees, yet many of the recipients return to the conference for years and even decades.
We raise funds to endow these fellowships from federal and industry sources, but we also rely on generous support from private donations.
Therefore, I ask you to consider making a donation to the fellowship fund to help us to maximize the support we can provide to those investigators at the first chapters of their careers, who we hope will become integrated into the community of Winter Brain.
The Winter Conference on Brain Research is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization and so donations to the fellowship fund qualify as US tax-deductible contributions.
