Interdepartmental Toxicology Graduate Program - M.S./Ph.D.

Travel to Professional Conferences and Symposia

The Interdepartmental Toxicology Graduate program believes that professional travel, whether local, national, or international, builds confidence, aids in networking, provides access to a community with similar research interests, and helps you develop the ability to communicate and defend your own research. Conferences and Symposia can recharge and open new avenues of thought. Talk with your major professor and POS committee members about the best opportunties.

Below are potential resources for funding for travel. Here is a form sample that you can use to keep track of travel expenses for reimbursement.

Request a Iowa State University Professional Advancement Grant Travel PAGs may be granted to students who attend a professional meeting, defined as a gathering of an organized society of professionals for the purpose of presenting research. Travel PAGs may also be approved for attending professional workshops that provide hands-on experiences not available at Iowa State University (ISU). Travel PAGs will not provide funding for required academic activities as defined in GPSS Bill 93-06, including workshops, classes, or other events required for fulfillment of a student's degree requirements or program of study. Travel PAGs are divided into two categories depending on the student's involvement at the meeting: Presenters and Non-Presenters (attending only). To qualify for a Presenting Travel PAG, the student must present results of research performed at ISU at the professional meeting. These categories are described in detail in GPSS Bill S07-01.

Symposia and Conferences may have travel grants for graduate students who are willing to help with the symposia or who are presenting.

Request Funding from your Home Department.

Students who are supported by training grants maybe able to request funding from training grants resources. (Example: IGERT, USDA, MGET, NSF).
