Build Your Resume, Add to Your Application

Are you interested in either presenting or attending a conference? TRiO STEM can work with you to apply for presentation acceptance, travel grants and Student Conference Attendee Grants. 

  • Presentations can be either a poster presentation or as part of a team presentation on a topic of interest for the conference. Most of these require 4-6 months or more prior to the conference for applications. 
  • Travel grants are offered by many of the conferences to allow a more diverse group of students to attend. 

Student Conference Attendee Grants are a TRiO STEM grant that active TRiO STEM participants may apply for. The grant may cover airfare, lodging, transportation and meals. Please see the application below.

Annual Biomedical Research Conference for Minority Students

November 14-17, 2018
Indianapolis, Indiana

When you attend the Annual Biomedical Research Conference for Minority Students (ABRCMS), you join one of the largest communities of underrepresented minorities in science, technology, engineering and mathematics. Students attend this conference to present their research, explore graduate schools, and network. Research faculty and program directors play an essential role in mentoring students and strategies for facilitating student success.

During the four-day conference, over 2,000 students from over 350 colleges and universities participate in poster and oral presentations in twelve STEM disciplines. All undergraduate student presentations are judged and those receiving the highest scores in each scientific discipline will be given an award during the closing banquet. 

Submissions for presentations and attendance are not available at this time. Check back later.
