Dow Travel Grants

MRL-Dow Travel Fellowships

As part of the DowMI and the MRL’s continual efforts to enhance the educational experience of both graduate students and postdocs, the DowMI awards a number of Travel Fellowships. These awards are intended to support activities outside the scope of our existing programs, such as travel by researchers to industrial laboratories and conferences. Typical awards are between $500-$1000. Students who are intending to apply for programs such as the MRS Graduate Student Award and Gordon Research Seminars are strongly encouraged to apply for the Travel Fellowships and will be offered the maximum $1000 support.

Details of the Travel Awards and the application process will be circulated to the MRL and DowMI participants when new competitions are opened. Please contact samantha [at] mrl [dot] ucsb [dot] edu (Samantha Cardillo) for further information.
