BMB Travel Fellowship

The Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology have limited funds available for BMB graduate students and non BMB graduate students working in BMB faculty labs for travel to present their research at professional conferences (in-person or virtual). Funding is in the form of a fellowship. Students must be enrolled for the semester in which they receive their funding.  

Please complete the travel application (PDF). The application includes an endorsement from the major professor/advisor stating that the student is making satisfactory progress in their graduate program. 

If student's travel is international, the trip must be registered in the International Travelers Abroad Database (https://travelregistry.msu.edu). When that is done, the student will be automatically enrolled for international travel insurance (provided by International SOS) at no cost to the student.  

A decision on support will be made within two weeks after receiving the Travel Fellowship Funding Application. Please note before any travel can be booked, an approved travel request must exist within SAP Concur. Jessica Lawrence jesslaw@msu.edu can assist with this step. 

Please see Updates in Guidance for Domestic and International Travel, for pertinent travel guidelines.
