Dear UNC School of Medicine Medical Students,

Do you have research that you are planning to present outside UNC? Are you preparing for an upcoming conference?

The John B. Graham Student Medical Research Society is accepting applications for travel awards (~$500), generously funded by the UNC Medical Alumni Association. These awards are in the form of reimbursement for travel, conference registration fees, and lodging expenses.

The deadlines are March 15, August 15, and November 15th (by midnight, no exceptions).

Covid-19 update: Travel award distribution is based on university regulations and guidelines. There are no Covid related restrictions at this time.

Students who have not previously received a John B. Graham travel award and are current John B. Graham society members (this includes ALL students who have presented at UNC Student Research Day) are eligible to apply. Priority will be given to students applying for funding for an upcoming conference.

Please send all documents as one PDF. Your application will need to include:

  • A filled-out application sheet
  • A copy of the accepted abstract (of which the student should be the first author)
  • A copy of the invitation to present or confirmation letter from the meeting
  • A letter of support from the student’s research preceptor describing the student’s role in the project and what funding support is available to the student for travel
