Scholarship Information

A limited number of travel scholarships are available for graduate and undergraduate students attending the symposium.  To be eligible, you must be a US citizen or permanent resident. Selected applicants are eligible for reimbursements of up to $500 for allowable travel expenses substantiated by receipt.  Allowable travel expenses include airfare or mileage expenses, airport shuttle costs, and the costs of lodging. Center for the Ecology of Infectious Disease staff will work with selected applicants to ensure travel arrangements comply with funding guidelines.  Individuals with allowable travel expenses totaling less than $500 will be reimbursed for all allowable expenses substantiated by receipt. In the event that travel funds remain available after all scholarships are awarded, the surplus will be evenly distributed to recipients whose allowable travel expenses exceed $500.
