Travel Grants for Postdoctoral Fellows

Application Guidelines and Instructions

This program has been established to support travel costs for postdoctoral fellows who present research results in-person at scientific meetings and symposia. The program will support costs of that travel up to a limit of $600 per fiscal year.

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

Eligibility
  • Eligibility for this program is restricted to UConn Health postdoctoral fellows whose faculty preceptor for research is based at UConn Health and contributes their indirect costs to UConn Health.
  • Applicants must be first author on a research abstract and present a corresponding poster or talk; the topic must be central to postdoctoral research performed at UConn Health.
  • Postdocs may only receive one travel grant in a given year and will not be eligible to apply the following year in order to provide an opportunity for others.

If there are any questions about this travel grant program, please contact Stephanie Holden at 860.679.2513 or sholden@uchc.edu.
