Rittenberg Meritorious Research Travel Awards

The Department of Molecular Microbiology and Immunology will award travel grants, worth $1000 each, to support students or postdoctoral fellows to attend national and international scientific meetings. Travel grants will be awarded on the basis of the scientific quality of the submitted abstracts.

Preference is given to fellows or students who have not received a travel grant in the past two years, and the selection committee will strive to award only one travel grant per laboratory.

To apply, email a single PDF file to Katie Jones, including the following:

  1. Cover letter indicating candidate name, name of the Principal Investigator (PI) of the corresponding MMI laboratory, conference name, dates, location, purpose and justification.
  2. Abstract
  3. Two-page CV in this format: biosketch

Deadlines: December 1 and June 1

Applications will be reviewed promptly and successful applicants will be notified within two weeks of receipt.
