Facilities and Resources

Travel budget

IGERT funds are available to support travel to conference by Fellows. This funding is not available to Associates. This funding is limited to $1000 per Fellow, which may be expended anytime during the Fellow's academic tenure at Columbia. Conferences must be relevant to the topical goals of the IGERT and supported by the Fellow's principal advisor. Fund requests should be made in writing to the IGERT Director by the principal advisor and will be approved on a rolling basis.


Special initiatives

IGERT students are eligible to apply for up to $5000 per year in funds for their own initiatives. These could be educational programs or research-oriented activities that benefit multiple IGERT students. Decisions will be made by the IGERT executive committee.
