Travel Grants

Travel grants (generally $750 per successful applicant) are available to graduate students or post-docs who are affiliated with a Center for Virology laboratory and who are attending a conference that has a significant virological dimension. Applicants must present either a poster or a talk at the conference to be eligible. Applications will be vetted by a small committee, but we hope to support almost all applicants that satisfy the above criteria.

Applications should include:

1) the abstract of your presentation at the meeting

2) a short description of the meeting, addressing its relevance to virology and the benefit to the student of attending the meeting

3) a short letter of support from the Center for Virology mentor

Application materials should be sent to Dr. Micah Luftig (micah.luftig@duke.edu). Please cc Christine Krupa (christine.krupa@duke.edu). Applications will be accepted throughout the year.
