Graduate Student Travel
Graduate student travel for professional reasons may apply to trips for the purpose of attending a scientific conference or learning new techniques. With appropriate documentation travel costs can be paid by grant or other sources. The specific documentation required will be determined by the student’s status as a research assistant (employee policies apply) or as a trainee/fellow (i.e., funded by a training grant or individual fellowship).
