Application Form for Travel Support

The MARGINS program of the National Science Foundation is providing travel support for US scientists to participate in the Subduction Zone Geodynamics Conference. To support NSF's educational and career development objectives, younger scientists (students, postdocs, and early-career PIs) will be given priority for support, and only scientists from US scientific institutions may apply. The number of scientists that can be accommodated depends on the final budget and on the number of applications. Only partial support is expected; travelers can expect a maximum of about $1000 to support their airfare and accommodations. For further information please contact the MARGINS Office or convener Clint Conrad.
