The goal of the Fund for Research and Education in Genetics (FREG) Travel Grant Program is to support IECB student participation in international courses and conferences that provide training in state of the art experimental or computational methods. The fund will finance the participation of each IECB student in one such course or conference over the period of their involvement in the IECB. To receive a travel grant, once a student has been accepted by a course or conference, he or she must submit to the IECB Steering Committee for approval a description of the course, a summary of the expected costs plus a letter of support from the thesis supervisor. This information can be submitted directly to the IECB Doctoral Program Administration.
The Travel Grant Program is made possible due to the extreme generosity of the Fund for Research and Education in Genetics.
