YI Travel Award Application Guidelines

To stimulate research careers in the field of schizophrenia and provide an educational opportunity for young scientists, the Congress will again offer a competition for Young Investigator Travel Awards. Interested applicants in both basic and clinical areas are encouraged to apply. The award is intended to attract bright, young scientists to the field of schizophrenia research and to this meeting.
