Travel Awards for Trainees

The Office of Cancer Training and Education at the Case Comprehensive Cancer Center (Case CCC) has announced the availability of funds to help offset the cost of travel for trainees of Case CCC to present their research at national meetings.


  • Trainees (graduate/medical students, postdocs, and residents/fellows in an oncology discipline) conducting cancer-focused research with a member of the Case CCC

  • Attend a national conference to present your research (poster or oral presentation)

  • Have funds available for any travel expenses not covered by the award

Funding Criteria

Funds will only be distributed upon receipt of actual travel expenses or to cover the cost of conference registration and flights in advance. All travel covered by the award must comply with CWRU and federal travel policies. Award amounts may vary.


There are four application deadlines: January 1, April 1, July 1, and October 1. Each deadline is for conferences occurring in the 2 months prior and the entire month of the deadline. (For example, conferences in November, December, and January should be applied for by the January 1 deadline.)
