Travel Awards

WV-INBRE announces the availability of travel awards to faculty and students at the Partner Institutions (primarily undergraduate institutions, PUIs). A maximum of $1,500 per travel award is allowed. Funds are to be used for travel expenses, lodging, meals, registration, and other justifiable expenses. The highest priority will be given to faculty members and students who will be presenting biomedical research they have conducted during the WV-INBRE summer research program or at their home institutions. Students may be supported to attend meetings with their summer or institutional mentor. No funds can be spent to support the summer mentors’ travel. Travel to meetings by PUI faculty and students who will not be presenting research but anticipate that attendance will enhance their educational or profession development or is beneficial to the WV-INBRE will be considered. Meetings centered on biomedical research will receive priority. Other meetings, if adequately justified, will be considered for grants. So that funds from the current grant year can be used to support the request, the travel must be completed by July 15, 2018. Applications may be submitted anytime prior to July 1, 2018.
