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) A short description of the meeting, addressing its relevance to virology and the benefit to the student of attending the meeting. Include the name, dates and location of the meeting.

2) The abstract of your presentation at the meeting.

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

To apply, please complete this form and email to Dr. Micah Luftig (micah.luftig@duke.edu). Please cc Christine Krupa (christine.krupa@duke.edu). Applications will be accepted throughout the year.
