BME Travel Funds

There are several different sources of funding (Departmental, COE, Graduate Conference Fund (GCF) and PURA) for graduate and undergraduate use for travel. The purpose of these funds is to financially assist students who are presenting their research at a conference.

Students whose home school is Biomedical Engineering and who are presenting their research at a conference will be eligible for BME Travel Funds. Eligibility for BME Travel Funds is once every fiscal year (7/1/XX-6/30/XX).

These funds are to be considered supplemental to the advisor's contribution.

Students awarded a travel fellowship, scholarship (i.e. PURA) or conference travel award will not be considered for BME Travel Funds, with the possible exception of international conference travel.
