The Center for Stem Cells and Regenerative Medicine will provide partial support for Notre Dame graduate students and postdoctoral researchers to attend research conferences in 2018. Funds that were raised from Notre Dame Day in 2017 will be used to support these travel fellowships. Applications for travel fellowships will be accepted on a rolling basis until all of the Notre Dame Day funds have been spent.
Travel Fellowship Eligibility. Graduate students and postdoctoral researchers (any individual with a Ph.D. AND not holding a tenure-track faculty position) may apply for a Travel Fellowship if they are presenting their research at either a regional, national, or international conference. The individual may request funds to cover up to 50% of the costs to attend the conference (travel, registration, lodging, and meals). The maximum amount provided per individual will be $1,000, with less being provided for regional and national conferences.
Application. Applications may be submitted at any time (either prior to or within 30 days following the conference) by emailing Dr. David Hyde (email@example.com) with the subject line SCReM-Travel Fellowship Application. To be considered, the following information needs to be submitted:
A. Application - The applicant must submit the following as a single PDF document via email to David Hyde
1. Cover Page: Name, gender, email address, home department, number of years in the doctoral program or since Ph.D. (for postdocs), research mentor, title of presentation, and type of presentation (poster or talk)
2. CV: CV of the applicant
3. Abstract: Title of presentation, authors, abstract, format of presentation (talk or poster)
4. Budget: Proposed budget to attend the meeting, including travel, registration fee, lodging, and meals
B. Letter of Support - The research mentor must submit a recommendation letter via email to David Hyde (firstname.lastname@example.org) and ensure that the subject line states SCReM-Travel Fellowship Application. The mentor must provide a statement that the applicant's abstract has already been selected for a presentation (and the type of presentation) and that the mentor will provide the remaining funds to send the applicant to the conference.
Deadline. Applications may be submitted at any time prior to or within 30 days following the conference, with awards being made on a rolling basis until all of the Notre Dame Day funds have been spent.
