Biotech Graduate Student and Postdoctoral Scholar Travel Awards Fund

The Biotechnology Program encourages early career scholars to attend professional meetings and workshops to provide an opportunity to present their research (poster or presentation), learn new skills and expand professional networks. Donations to the travel award fund will support Designated Emphasis in Biotechnology (DEB) doctoral students, and master’s degree and postdoctoral scholars participating in the Biotech Leaders Advancing STEM Technologies (BLAST) program. Awards may support event registration, travel and/or lodging and will be made on a quarterly basis during the academic year via a competitive application process under the purview of the Biotechnology Advisory Committee faculty.
