Travel scholarships for the 2007 Conference on Implantable Auditory Prostheses

As has been done every 2 years since 1999, the charity Deafness Research
UK has agreed to provide some financial support for a small number of
U.K.-based Ph.D. students and recent post-docs to attend the 2007
Conference on Implantable Auditory Prostheses at Lake Tahoe, California,
15-20 July:


Four travel awards of £750 each are available. Clearly, this amount will
not cover the total expenses, but should provide an important supplement
to other funding.

Those eligible to apply are Ph.D. students and recent post-doctoral
students at UK institutions. Preference will be given to candidates
involved in cochlear implant research or attached to a cochlear implant
programme. Please send applications to me by email on or before 25 May.
This should include a brief CV, a statement of research interests, a
statement of the potential benefits of attending the conference, and a
supporting letter from the supervisor or current 'boss'. It is a
condition of the funding that a brief report be sent to Defeating
Deafness after the conference. If you are considering applying, I would
appreciate a short message right away so I can gauge the demand.
A decision will be made, in consultation with Prof Brian Moore, by 1 June.

Please forward this message to anyone you think might be interested.
