The travel grant to attend the meeting of the International Neuroethics Society (INS) seeks to develop, support, and promote scientific research but also to promote international collaboration and exchange of scientific information in neuroscience, and specifically ethics, neuroscience and law.
The International Neuroethics Society is an association of professionals and students interested in neuroethics. IBRO-USCRC is committed to supporting the INS mission to encourage and inspire research and dialogue on the responsible use of advances in brain science.
The meeting addresses societal issues in a creative manner, bringing together specialists in very divergent fields.
A key focus of this funding program is to help students and young faculty from diverse backgrounds from North America and from under-resourced countries to participate in discussions of the INS.
The Executive Director of INS, Karen Graham, will ensure that awards will be given to those from minority serving institutions in the US, and to those in Canada from the smaller non-U15 Universities. Additionally, if funds are available after funding US and Canadian attendees, it will be used to support those in under-resourced countries (based on World Bank criteria).
