Travel Grants for Graduate Students

Application Guidelines and Instructions

This program has been established to support travel costs for graduate students (PhD, MD/PhD, or DMD/PhD students) who present research results in-person at scientific meetings and symposia. The program will support costs of that travel up to a limit of $700 per fiscal year. Note, HCRAC travel funds cannot be combined with any other UConn travel support.

Awards are made on a first-come, first-served basis, until the funds for this program have been exhausted.

  • Eligibility for this program is restricted to UConn Health graduate students (PhD, MD/PhD, or DMD/PhD students) provided that their faculty preceptor for the research is based at UConn Health.
  • In order to be eligible, applicants must have a research paper or poster accepted for presentation, and that paper must be related to the graduate student’s thesis or dissertation research.
  • Only one presenter per abstract will be eligible for funding under the travel grants program, first author having precedence for an award.
