The PTAA award is a versatile opportunity for postdoctoral researchers whose research
or creative projects have been accepted for presentation at professional meetings
in person or virtually. With proper documentation, it can be used to attend academic
workshops or training opportunities as well, even if there are no presentation requirements.
