Note: Given COVID-19, Ireland travel awards will be postpone until further notice.

The Ireland research travel awards are strategically targeted to provide students with unique and valuable opportunities. The research travel scholarship, which awards a maximum of $1,000, is not designed to send someone to a professional meeting; it’s designed to enable a student to capture an educational opportunity that doesn’t exist at UAB. These travel scholarships are highly competitive, and in the past have funded a wide range of researching, including a trip to the Library of Congress to study historic documents and taking a course on neuroimmunological diseases at the Marine Biological Laboratory in Woods Hole. These travel awards provide elite educational experiences that enrich not only our students, but UAB as a whole.

This award is funded by an endowment established at UAB by Caroline Ireland and the late Charles W. Ireland.

Interested students should contact their graduate program directors, who are responsible for making nominations. In addition to the nomination form, a letter of recommendation is also required. Students are encouraged to check this link or the Graduate Student tab of BlazerNET for the announcement of the next competition, which will be held in the spring of each year.
