As some of you may know, I recently received a $500 travel grant from NextBio, makers of a free web-based "curated, correlated database of public data, integrated literature, clinical trials, and scientific news." The grant can be used to attend the scientific conference of my choice, which is awesome.
Well, they're at it again! If you're a graduate student or medical student interested in applying for a travel grant, check out the NextBio grants website. To apply, you must submit a one-page essay describing how you've used NextBio tools in your research. The deadline for applications is June 30, 2009, and recipients of the award will be notified by July 15. It looks like the company has decided to award grants like this on a continuing basis, which is great news for poor grad students everywhere.
