Trainee Travel Stipend

UBC Healthy Aging Trainee Travel Stipend

The Trainee Travel Stipend is open to graduate students and postdoctoral/clinical fellows working under the supervision of a faculty member of the Edwin S.H. Leong Centre for Healthy Aging. The purpose of the Trainee Travel Stipend is to support trainees to present at national/international conferences. By supporting trainees to participate in conferences, the program hopes to help foster career development and networking opportunities for trainees. Trainees will be reimbursed up to $500 for expenses related to attending the conference. Fees related to presenting at a virtual conference are also eligible for reimbursement. If trainees have already been reimbursed by their faculty supervisor for the conference, or the supervisor paid for the expenses directly, then the funds can be transferred to their Supervisor’s grant.

We are currently accepting applications to reimburse trainees for expenses that were incurred between December 1, 2022 – May 31, 2023. Please see the guidelines and application form below for more details. Applications must be submitted by 4:00 PM on May 30th, 2023.
