Each year multiple training grant slots are awarded to biomedical graduate students. Students must be nominated by their mentor, and nominees must be a U.S. national or permanent resident. Awards are made based on undergraduate and graduate GPAs, GRE scores, and recommendation letters.
All CMDB students are encouraged to apply for grant funding. The new Graduate School Incentive Program to Promote Individual Fellowship Applications will provide $250 awards to students who submit fellowship applications and $2,000 additional support to students who receive a fellowship award.
UAB's Graduate Student Association awards travel grants of up to $400 for presentations at academic or professional conferences. Click here for details.
