International Travel Fund – Graduate Students

The International Travel Fund provides funding for graduate student conference presentations and research studies abroad. Awards range from $200 to $1,000. Funding decisions are based on the distance of the international conference from the continental United States, the budget requested, and the availability of funding at the time the request is received by the Graduate School. The Graduate School must receive completed applications at least one month prior to travel.

Eligible Applicants: all medical students
Deadline: Rolling
Travel Awards

The Alpert Medical School has a limited pool of funds to help support students attending national and international academic conferences either to present scholarly work or to represent AMS in a leadership capacity. AMS may be able to reimburse students for reasonable (coach) travel and lodging expenses, and conference registration fees. Please understand that this funding is limited. We encourage students to budget wisely and consider cost-sharing measures, such as sharing hotel rooms, when possible. 

In order ensure the greatest amount of equity possible across a large student body, an individual student will only be eligible for a single financial award in any given fiscal year (July 1 through June 30).

Eligible Applicants: To apply for funding, please send a copy of your abstract (if applicable), and documentation of your acceptance to the conference, to Emily Green (emily_green@brown.edu). All application materials must be received and the award approved prior to the start of the conference. Awards are generally up to $750 for conferences in the United States and Canada, and up to $1000 for conferences elsewhere. Each student attending a conference, even if attending as part of a student group, must submit an individual application for funding. In the case that multiple students are attending the same conference, the sharing of hotel rooms and transportation costs (such as taxis) will be expected.
Deadline: Rolling
