Graduate School Conference Travel Policy

The Division believes that presenting papers at professional conferences is important to students' academic careers and growth as professionals. Pre-doctoral and Master's students who have been invited to present papers at academic conferences can apply for up to $500 to cover related travel expenses. Students will be reimbursed for only one conference per academic year; reimbursement will not be granted for merely attending a conference. In order to insure that the limited conference-travel funds are distributed as equitably as possible, students in their first through fifth years of study are eligible for conference travel reimbursement; all students must apply for travel reimbursement to The Office for Graduate & Postdoctoral Studies at least one month prior to travel. Applications should be submitted to the Office of Graduate & Postdoctoral Studies via email, campus mail, or fax. See application for all necessary documentation and signatures required.

International Conference Travel

Master's students and doctoral students in years 1-5 of their studies who are presenting their reseasrch at international conferences are eligible to apply for the international travel fund award. This fund is administered by the Graduate School. The BioMed Conference Travel Award may be combined with the International Converence Travel funding for students presenting at international conferences.
