Graduate Research Enhancement & Travel Awards

The GREAT Awards ($100-$500 per student plus funds from supervisor) are to support attendance at international, as well as prestigious out-of-province meetings, conferences, and symposium. Students are encouraged to identify conferences which they would like to attend, in consultation with their supervisor. Additionally, these funds may be used to support travel for research enhancement or collaboration.

Preference will be given to applicants who will present an oral or poster presentation at the meeting, and who provide proof of registration and a copy of their abstract.
