Apply for the LHSI travel grant to attend a conference or a meeting. Competitive travel grants are available to assist current and former Life-Health Sciences Internship Program students with travel expenses to a conference or a meeting. A maximum of $1,500 will be available for each grant; the amount of the award is based on actual expenses. Note the following:
1. An intern is only eligible to receive the grant once (for one trip), and we are unable to fund international travel at this time.
2. Preference is given to interns presenting their work and those attending events with a career development component. Seek opportunities to attend conferences or meetings related to your internship, career, or academic goals.
3. Be sure you have filled out the application in its entirety and have submitted estimated expenses. Application deadlines for the 2016–2017 academic year are September 9, January 27, and May 19. Applications are only reviewed on these dates. Decisions are sent to applicants within one to two business days after the deadline.
Notes for grant recipients:
Some expenses can be prepaid through the LHSI office, including registration, airfare, and sometimes the hotel reservation. Contact the director with any prepayment needs as soon as possible, as prices can increase closer to the actual date of travel. Prepayment is highly recommended.
You will be set up in the Travel@IU system within One.IU soon after your grant approval. Upon return, all receipts need to be submitted (including anything that was prepaid). Save everything!
Indiana University Travel Policy: Travelers (employees and nonemployees) will have 60 days from the return date of their trip in which to submit travel reimbursement claims. Reimbursements submitted after this 60-day period will be considered taxable income. After 120 days from the return date of the trip, there will be no reimbursement. Indiana University Foundation funds may not be used for the reimbursement after this time period.
Review all IU travel reimbursement policies.
