Diversity Travel Awards

Available to enhance the participation of individuals with disabilities and individuals from racial and ethnic groups that are underrepresented in the sciences.  For the latter, in the United States, the following terms are used for this: Black or African American, Hispanic or Latinx, American Indian or Alaska Native, Native Hawaiian and other Pacific Islander.
