Conference Travel Grants Now Available Through GPSS

Dear Biological Sciences Grad Students,
If you went to a conference either last fall or this spring, and have not yet been fully reimbursed, you can apply for up to $500 worth of travel grant funding. If you have any questions you can contact me at, or the finance committee

Also I am looking for a graduate student to serve as my "proxy" to attend the next senate meeting on April 25th in my place. It will be from 5:00pm until it ends which is usually a little after 7. Please email me if you are interested.

Graduate and professional students who have presented or attended at a conference are eligible for up to $500 in reimbursements for the fiscal year (Summer 2010, Fall 2010, and Spring 2011).

Fight on!
