The Leadership Grant for International Educators enables a select group of microbiology/biology/health science undergraduate educators from resource-limited countries to attend the ASM Conference for Undergraduate Educators (ASMCUE) and a pre-conference workshop to provide these future leaders in STEM education with the resources to develop and pilot innovative pedagogy and learning modules that engage students and lead to enduring understandings in microbiology/biology/health science. As part of this grant ASM will provide up to $3,000 US dollars travel subsidy for roundtrip economy airfare to the US and any necessary transportation in the US and provides complimentary housing and meeting registration to ASMCUE. Travel subsidies are distributed on a reimbursable basis. Description & Eligibility: http://www.asmcue.org/index.php/travelawards/asmcue-leadership-grant-for-international-educators
