Molecular and medical genetics travel awards

The Department of Molecular and Medical Genetics is pleased to announce a newly instituted travel award. This award will help cover the cost of up to two conferences over the course of an MMG graduate student's training. Only one of these two trips may be taken each academic year. Travel awards will be limited to $1500 per trip and be contingent upon the student passing the Qualifying exam and submission of a Tartar grant application. Travel awards are intended for students in good academic standing through their 6th year of training.  

An application must be submitted the Departmental Directors of Graduate Education and should include: a description of the conference, the location, date, and estimated cost. A 300 word abstract on why the trip is relevant to the student's research should also be attached. The intent of the award is for the student to gain exposure at a scientific conference by presenting a poster or platform presentation
