Graduate Student Travel Award Opportunity

The Department of Chemistry is pleased to announce the implementation of multiple Graduate Student Travel Awards for the academic year 2016-2017. This award is open to all UW Chemistry graduate students that have passed the General Examination. Selected students will receive a Travel Award of up to $750 to cover documented domestic travel expenses ($1,500 for international travel) to the institution where they received their undergraduate degree and present a seminar on their Ph.D. research.

In order to be considered for a Graduate Student Travel Award, students should:
