Students are encouraged to present their research findings at professional meetings. Funding is available from the School of Medicine and Public Health departments to defray travel costs for students. More than 50 students are awarded support each year.
Medical students who are presenting their research can be considered for a travel award. Support will be approved for up to 50% of travel and conference expenses, not to exceed $500.00. Students will receive their educational outreach payment AFTER presentations have been made and AFTER receipts have been uploaded to the application. Please note that we cannot issue payments for conferences that take place after the student’s graduation as an M4 in May.
Please note: These payments are processed through your student financial account with the bursar’s office. If your account balance is at zero (i.e., nothing is owed toward tuition), you will receive the full educational outreach payment. If your account balance is not zero, it is possible that the payment will impact your financial aid offer and you may not receive the funds as a payment.
