JARED M. ROBERTS MEMORIAL GRADUATE STUDENT TRAVEL AWARD
The Jared M. Roberts Memorial Travel Fund was set up by friends, family members, and colleagues to honor the contributions of Jared M. Roberts, who conducted his graduate studies at the Center for the Neurobiology of Learning and Memory. The award supports travel for an exceptional graduate student to attend the Annual Winter Neurobiology of Learning and Memory Conference in Park City, UT. Jared was a devoted attendee of the Conference and has presented his work there on numerous occasions, which has directly led to the expansion of the impact of the work among colleagues in the field. Jared loved the meeting and credited it with much of his academic development. In hope of others following in similar footsteps, the fund is set up to support a competitively-selected graduate student studying in one of the CNLM laboratories to attend the meeting.
The award is currently accepting contributions and will convert to an endowment to support the award in perpetuity once the total contributions reach $25,000. All contributions are 100% tax-deductible.
