Recruitment travel application

Each graduate student, postdoc, or MagLab scientist or staff member can apply for travel associated with recruitment once per year. The total travel amount for awardees is up to $2000. Awardees will be chosen based on a set process/application.

Applications for travel must be submitted by the first of each month. The Recruitment subcommittee will review and make decisions by the 15th of each month.

Allowable costs:

  • Travel costs (air fare, car, rental, gas)
  • Hotel
  • Meal expenses
  • Conference Registration fees

If you receive this award, then you agree to submit your receipts within 2 business days of your return. You also agree to write-up a summary of your experience. This summary should include:

  • Provide an estimate of the number of people you spoke to about the lab.
  • What career level were they (e.g. undergraduate, graduate, postdoc, early career scientists)?
  • Did you connect any of these people with direct contacts at the lab? If yes, who? (For example, a student might approach you with an interest in MRI research with animals. You could then tell them the name of someone at the lab who they could contact.)
  • What were the benefits to you personally for attending this conference?
  • What were the benefits to the lab?
