The NAI maintains a small fund to help support travel and accommodation costs associated with collaborations between NAI members and international colleagues in the field of astrobiology. This funding supports travel by NAI members affiliated with US. institutions to non-U.S. laboratories or field sites.

Recent Award:

The NAI has selected Drs. Dawn Cardace, from the Ames Research Center, and D’Arcy Meyer-Dombard, of the University of Illinois at Chicago, to travel to investigate “Deeply Sourced Springs of the Northern Anatolian Fault Zone: An Opportunity to Constrain Astrobiological Interpretations of Martian Surface Seep Structures and Mineralogy.”
