The Burroughs Wellcome Fund is accepting applications for its Collaborative Research Travel Grants (CRTG) for biomedical researchers. The grant provides up to $15,000 for domestic or international travel to visit labs at other institutions to learn new research techniques, or to begin or continue research collaboration.
CTRG funds can be applied towards airfare, accommodations, meals, ground transportation, and other travel expenses — as well as lab supplies and other material expenses required for the visit.
The grant is open to faculty members, researchers, and trainees — including postdocs and fellows — in biomedical sciences, who are citizens or permanent residents of the United States or Canada, and are hosted at a degree-granting institution in the United States or Canada. Researchers with doctorate-level training in the physical, mathematical, or engineering sciences are especially encouraged to apply.
Applications are due on Feb. 1, 2017.
