|Dean's Travel Fellowships
PhD students who are in good academic standing (3.0 or better GPA) are encouraged to apply to the Graduate School for Fellowships to attend domestic scientific meetings. Please download the “Student Travel Approval Form”, which can be found as part of the GSBS Forms located on the home page of this website. The GSBS currently offers up to $600 for travel expenses to doctoral students who have an approved thesis proposal and who are presenting papers at scientific meetings.
The guidelines for these awards are:
- A formal abstract acknowledging UMDNJ – Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences as a research site.
- The student must be first author on the abstract to be presented.
- The research must be part of the approved dissertation proposal.
- Doctoral candidates are eligible for a total of two awards, but only one award will be approved within any 12-month period.
This “Student Travel Approval Form” along with the completed “Employee Travel Approval/Advance Report” (TA form) approved by the department chairman [or Program Director] and the campus Associate Dean must be forwarded to the Dean for approval. A copy of the formal abstract must be included with the travel approval form. Please refer to the “Student Travel Approval Form”, which is part of the GSBS Forms for more details.
