Student and Postdoctoral Fellow Research Travel Funding Program

I am pleased to report that the UPEI Research Travel Funding program supported conference travel for 41 graduate students, undergraduate students, and postdoctoral fellows in 2018.  A total of over $20,000 was expended, which is the most that has been spent per annum on this program since its inception in 2013.

Unfortunately, however, this high demand has exhausted funding for this fiscal year.  Therefore, Research Services will not be able to fund any new travel awards for students and postdoctoral fellows, from now until April 30, 2019.  Existing approved requests will be honoured; however, we will not accept new requests for travel occurring before April 30, 2019.
