About the Travel Programs

Each of these travel programs provide $750 to recipients to help defray the cost of travel and registration fees to a scientific meeting where the awardees will present their research. Recipients from each of the programs are required to present their work at the Robert H. Lurie Comprehensive Cancer Center of Northwestern University's Annual Scientific Poster Session at the end of the academic year. The programs have the same deadlines, application and selection process. Reviewed by appropriate Faculty Committees, the awards are competitive with three application cycles each academic year. No awards will be given for past meetings. Doctoral students or postdoctoral fellows may receive only one travel award per academic year and a maximum of two awards from any program during the applicant's academic career at Northwestern University.

Note: For conferences that will be held in December, January, February and March, applicants should apply in November. For conferences that will be held in April, May, June and July, applicants should apply in March. Conferences that will be held in August, September, October and November should apply in July.

The Application Process:

All required information and sections of the application must be assembled into a single PDF file to be valid. Please submit only one original abstract. If there is no formal meeting abstract form, please indicate that on the submitted application. Previously unaccepted abstracts may only be resubmitted if applying to attend a different scientific meeting.
