If you are planning on presenting a publication directly related to your thesis at a conference, you may be eligible for a travel grant.

The Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies Office (GSPO) of the Faculty of Medicine recognizes the importance of sharing the research findings of master's with thesis, PhD and fast-track students with the broader scientific community. To this end, the GSP awards travel grants to these individuals so that they can present the results of their research closely related to the thesis at major conferences. The program also provides an opportunity to exchange with other researchers in one's field.

Eligible students include Master’s with thesis option students; doctoral students and students enrolled in a “fast-track” program. Consult the relevant section below for more details on eligibility criteria. Please note that funds are limited.

  • Master's with thesis: up to $550

  • PhD and fast-track: up to $800

If you have any questions or require further assistance, please feel free to contact Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies offices.
