Travel Grants

Next Travel Grant Deadline: 
June 15th, 2014

Graduate students and postdoctoral scientists who work in laboratories belonging to MPGI faculty members are eligible to apply for funds to help support travel to professional meetings, scientific laboratories, or workshops to learn new techniques, or for the collection of biological materials.

If funds are to be used for travel to a scientific meeting, the applicant must be making a presentation (talk or poster). A maximum of $800 per person will be awarded.

An application must be received by the appropriate deadline, or it will not be accepted. Reimbursements for past trips are not allowed.

To apply, fill out the two-page application form, and send it by campus mail to Kit Leffler, MPGI, Cargill Building, 1500 Gortner Ave, St. Paul Campus (delivery code 6127), or e-mail it to mleffler@umn.edu.

The MPGI Travel Award Committee will make decisions within 3 weeks after the deadline. Anyone who receives funding will be expected to participate in the MPGI Retreat.

Only one award per calendar year can be made per person. Applications from researchers in labs that have not previously received MPGI funding will be given first consideration.
