Program Description

Part of CSUPERB’s mission is to develop a professional biotechnology workforce by supporting collaborative CSU student and faculty research.  CSUPERB recognizes that access to research opportunities is critical to engaging and retaining students in life science careers. Likewise, the opportunity to present research results is crucial to professional development.

The CSUPERB Student Travel Grant Program supports CSU student travel to biotechnology-related professional meetings and workshops or to collect biotechnology-related data at shared instrumentation facilities or research sites.

The CSUPERB 2015 Spring RFP will support travel between January 1, 2015 and December 31, 2015. Please note that each round of grants will support travel within a 12-month window; there is a 6-month overlap between each round’s travel window. This grant program does not make awards to support travel to the CSU Biotechnology Symposium.

CSUPERB welcomes and encourages applications from CSU students from all biotechnology-related disciplines, including but not limited to life sciences, physical sciences, clinical sciences, math, computer science, agricultural science, engineering, and/or business departments or colleges.
