The Office for Research and Scholarship is happy to promote DGSOM student interest in research and scholarly work ultimately leading to opportunities to present your abstract and work at an off-campus meeting or conference. All DGSOM students who have had their abstract accepted at a meeting or conference can apply for a DGSOM Research Travel Grant and receive upwards to $500 towards their travel costs.
Students will receive official approval of the amount of funding and how to apply for reimbursement, after completing the Research Travel Grant form and providing requested documentation.
Note: that the max students receive is $500 for any travel grant. The hope is that PI’s supplement some portion but if not, then we try to provide as much as possible but generally students request amounts higher than what is given but the max is always $500
REQUEST TRAVEL FUNDING
All approved travel funding requests are approved with the idea that you will be reimbursed for your travel after your trip has been completed. There will be no funds provided beforehand.
Student Reimbursement Form
Students must submit all reimbursement receipts and forms within 21 days of the event or travel. The student must submit a copy of itemized receipts and/or bank/credit card statements along with the Student Reimbursement Form.
Please review the items that are eligible for reimbursement:

It is important to note that reimbursements processed will take at least 2-3 weeks minimum before you receive the payment considering all receipts are accurate and there are no delays in the process. If you are unwilling to wait this period of time to receive funds, it is not suggested you apply for the travel funding request. All payments are mailed to your most up to date address on file so please make sure all your information is accurate and up to date in the system.
If you have any questions about reimbursements, please email Shamar Jones at firstname.lastname@example.org
