Stony Brook Postdoc Travel Awards
The Postdoc Travel Award reimburses travel costs associated with national or international scientific or professional conferences or meetings, up to a maximum of $1,500. Funds are awarded based on the significance of the conference to the postdoc’s career and require that the postdoc present results at the event. Funds must be used for travel expenses that cannot be supported by departmental resources, the postdoctoral supervisor's budget, or other sources of support, and the postdoc’s supervisor must verify by signature that the supervisor and the department are unable to provide funding for the travel requested. Funds are awarded based on the application and budget submitted. Travel funds will be administered by the Office of Postdoctoral Affairs and are subject to the availability of funds.
Deadline: You may apply at any time, but it must be at least ONE FULL MONTH before travel takes place. The Travel Award cannot be granted for travel that has already been completed.
Eligibility: A postdoc may receive only one award during his/her appointment at SBU. Applicants must be employed in the title of Postdoc Associate, Sr. Postdoc Associate or Postdoc Fellow in order to be eligible. If the postdoc is employed under another title, the postdoctoral supervisor must certify on the application form that the applicant is considered a postdoc.

The awards cover registration, lodging, and travel expenses, up to the limit of the award. Award amounts will vary, but the maximum amount awarded will be $1,000. Awards are competitively allocated and limited to one per institution. The number of awards granted will depend on the estimated cost of each application, matching funds available, and the amount of funds raised by the NPA.
