SCHULTZ TRAVEL FELLOWSHIP

The Schultz Travel Fellowships defray travel and registration costs for scientific conferences. Fellowships are awarded to graduate students in the very broad area of cancer or medical related research, who are making an oral or poster presentation at a scientific conference.
Eligibility
  • Students whose advisor has a principal appointment in Biochemistry may apply, regardless of which graduate program they are in (except for students in MCB, which provides separate travel funds).
  • Students must be presenting a talk or a poster of their work.
  • Priority is given to students in their third and fourth years of graduate work, but students in their second or fifth years will also be considered for exceptional opportunities.
  • In general students can receive this fellowship once during their time at UW. However, for exceptional opportunities funding may be provided to attend a second conference.
Application
Please submit your application as far in advance of your planned travel as possible. To apply, complete the on line form (https://catalyst.uw.edu/webq/survey/skuse/171471). The form requests:
  • a brief explanation of how your work relates to cancer or another medical research area
  • the title and abstract of your oral or poster presentation
  • how attending the conference will contribute to your scientific development
  • if requesting funds for a second time, or for students in their second or fifth years, why this represents an exceptional opportunity
  • anticipated travel costs
  • whether your mentor, program, or another fellowship can help to defray the costs
Please email Tonya Hirtzel at skuse@uw.edu after submitting your application.
Evaluation
Applications are accepted on an ongoing basis, and are evaluated by a committee of three faculty members and one graduate student.
