Program Description

Part of CSUPERB’s mission is to develop a professional biotechnology workforce by supporting collaborative CSU student-faculty research.  The opportunity to collect novel data, learn new techniques and present research results is crucial to both professional career development and the advancement of CSU-based research programs.

The CSUPERB Student Travel Grant Program supports faculty-mentored CSU students. Travel to biotechnology-related professional meetings and workshops or to collect biotechnology-related data at shared instrumentation facilities or research sites is supported by this grant program. 

The CSUPERB 2016 Spring RFP will support travel between January 1, 2016 and December 31, 2016. 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.
