Conference Travel Reimbursement for BMB Graduate Students
Graduate students (PhD, MD/PhD and MS) in the Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (BMB) Program can receive travel expense reimbursement for attending scientific meetings where the student (1) presents a paper at a conference, (2) serves as a group discussion moderator or (3) presents at a poster session. The BMB program will reimburse graduate students for up to $500 total for conferences during the course of their graduate education. The $500 can be used for one conference or be divided among multiple conferences.
Funding will be given only to those applicants who can demonstrate their participation in a conference (i.e. presenting data) and not just attending a conference. The BMB travel reimbursement can be used in combination with the two $300 Health Science Division Graduate School travel reimbursements available to PhD and MD/PhD students.
To qualify for the BMB travel reimbursement, fill out the following Travel Request Form and get it signed by your advisor and then the GPD. The form must have attached proof of conference participation. Submit a copy of the form to Donna Buczek in the Graduate School office (SSOM-300).
