NEW Travel Award for BMB Undergraduates

The Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (BMB) department has a travel award available for undergraduates who are looking for financial assistance to attend a conference, meeting, workshop, etc. Students should complete an application, which is reviewed by BMB Academic Affairs Committee, and distributed on a first-come, first-served basis. If funds are available, BMB will cover up to $500 in travel expenses with the expectation that a student's PI or other funding sources will match the amount that BMB contributes. Preference is given to students who present talks or posters at meetings.

Students working in a BMB lab should ask their PI for more information about how to apply for a travel award. Students working in labs outside of BMB should contact Amy Springer at chiefadvisor@biochem.umass.edu to access the application.
