BMC Department Travel Awards are offered three times each year. Graduate students and post-doctoral fellows in labs of faculty whose primary appointments are in Biomolecular Chemistry are eligible to apply for departmental travel awards.
These awards are funded by generous donations from the late Dr. John Porter, a former professor in the Department, the Markey Foundation, and Paul Dietrich, an alumnus of the Department who worked under Dr. Robert Metzenberg.
The maximum annual award is $500. No more than one award will be given to any one individual within a year (May 1- April 30).
If application requests exceed the funds available within the 12 month-period beginning on May 1, preference will be given to those labs or applicants who have previously received the fewest number of awards.
We expect that no more than two awards will be given to any one individual during their tenure in the department, except under unusual circumstances.
