ChemBE’s Conference Travel Award aims to fund graduate students and post-docs for unique professional development travel opportunities, such as attending affinity-group conferences (SWE, NSBE, SHPE, ARBCMS, Grace Hopper/Tapia), for visiting collaborators’ labs, attending a workshop to gain a new thesis-related skill, or presenting at specialty conferences (e.g., Gordon Research Conferences, Cold Spring Harbor). The purpose of this award is to increase diversity in conference participation, to provide members of the department with essential professional development and networking opportunities, and to further our department’s diversity goals.

Paulette Clancy, department head, says, “At this time, planning for future travel is a sign of hope that we will eventually return to more normal operations, and this commitment underscores the department’s ongoing commitment to diversity.”
