About the Travel Programs


Each of these travel programs provide $750 to recipients to help defray the cost of travel and registration fees to a scientific meeting where the awardees will present their research. Recipients from each of the programs are required to present their work at the Robert H. Lurie Comprehensive Cancer Center of Northwestern University's Annual Scientific Poster Session at the end of the academic year. The programs have the same deadlines, application and selection process. Reviewed by appropriate Faculty Committees, the awards are competitive with three application cycles each academic year. No awards will be given for past meetings.
