Medical Faculty Association Awards


Travel Awards for Graduate Students & Postdocs

The Medical Faculty Association offers travel awards to graduate students twice per year. No award will exceed $600. These awards are generated by an endowment that was graciously given the University with the intent to subsidize travel costs of our highly motivated trainees.
