ORWH Offers Science Policy Travel Award

The Office of Research on Women’s Health is offering a Science Policy Scholar Travel Award to a junior investigator whose work focuses on women’s health or sex/gender differences, as well as on policy. The award will be available to support travel to the annual meeting of the Organization for the Study of Sex Differences (OSSD) May 5-8, 2019, in Washington, D.C. 

Interested investigators should submit an abstract on a policy-related matter connected to women’s health or sex/gender differences for consideration as a poster, oral session or symposium at OSSD’s annual meeting. A panel of experts will review the abstracts; the author of the one chosen will receive the travel award. 

Attendance at the OSSD meeting will be a unique opportunity for an investigator to network with leading scientists and clinicians working to advance sex and gender inclusion and policy. Federal employees are not eligible for the award. For details, visit
