2017 Annual Biomedical Research Conference for Minority Students (ABRCMS)



Research continues to show the importance mentors play in minorities’ success in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) fields. By volunteering to judge poster and oral presentations at the 2017 Annual Biomedical Research Conference for Minority Students (ABRCMS), you’ll contribute to the future of STEM.

Postdoctoral scientists and faculty members, who are active researchers and interested in mentoring students can apply for the ABRCMS Judge Travel Award. The award covers conference registration, housing, airfare, and provides a travel subsidy. Returning judges are eligible for conference registration and/or housing.


Travel Award application deadline:  July 20, 2017

Abstract Submission and Student Travel Award Sites Now Open

Community college students who have completed at least 30 credit hours, and undergraduate sophomores, juniors, seniors and post-baccalaureates in STEM are invited to submit abstracts for oral and poster presentations at ABRCMS 2017. The deadline for submissions is September 8, 2017.  Learn more.

If students are seeking funds to attend the conference, the ABRCMS Student Travel Award provides first-time presenting students with conference registration, housing, airfare and a travel subsidy. Travel award applicants must submit an abstract for consideration. The travel award site closes August 25, 2017. Learn more.

Important: The new ABRCMS grant states that registration and meals must be uncoupled. That means that you’ll need to purchase a meal plan ticket in addition to the registration fee. Please keep this in mind as you prepare to attend this year’s meeting.
