Conference Awards

NICHD Young Investigator Awards


The FIT’NG meeting provides an invaluable opportunity for many in our field to present their work, to extend their network of colleagues, and pursue specific employment options.

The FIT’NG Society would like to encourage students, research assistants, postdoctoral fellows and early career faculty (e.g. assistant, adjunct or visiting professors) to apply for the Young Investigator Award* to help defray the cost of conference registration. These awards are offered with support from the National Institute of Health (NIH). Individuals from traditionally underrepresented groups in science will be prioritized for these awards. Underrepresented groups, as defined by the NIH, include individuals from underrepresented groups, individuals with disabilities, individuals from disadvantaged backgrounds, and women.
