Conference Travel

Travel Awards

Students planning to make a presentation at a scientific conference should contact the Graduate Program Coordinator (Elaine Butler) at least one month before the conference for assistance with obtaining conference travel support.  The Coordinator will need information including the URL for the conference web site, the title of the poster/talk to be presented by the student at the conference, and estimated expenses for travel, registration, meals, and lodging.

There are several sources of conference travel support available including the Office of Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies, the MCB Graduate Program, and various institutional training grants. The Program Coordinator will work with each student to identify and apply for all the eligible sources of support.
