VSS is now accepting applications for the 2008 Elsevier/Vision Research
Travel Awards. Up to 20 Travel Awards will be given to help offset the cost
of attending the conference. Awards of $500 are given to eligible graduate
students on a competitive basis. To be eligible for consideration, the
applicant must be a 2008 student member of VSS and the first author of a
submitted abstract (both talks and poster presentations are eligible). Past
award recipients are ineligible. You must indicate that you are applying for
a Student Travel Award when you submit your abstract.

To apply for a Student Travel Award: 

1) Check the box indicating that you are applying for a Student Travel Award
when you submit your abstract (deadline is December 1, 2007), 
2) Submit a curriculum vitae (CV) and other personal information and, 
3) Provide a statement of support from your advisor. Complete application
instructions can be found at http://www.visionsciences.org/awards.html.

The student's CV and the supervisor's statement of support are due not later
than 12/15/07.

Awards will be determined by the VSS Board of Directors, based on an
assessment of the applicant's and supervisor's statements and on the
scientific merit of the work to be presented.

The 2008 VSS Student Travel Awards are generously sponsored by
Elsevier/Vision Research.
