For More Information
The Collaborative Research Travel Grant (CRTG) program provides support for relatively unrestricted travel funds to academic scientists (faculty and postdocs) at U.S. or Canadian degree-granting institutions. Grants must be used for domestic or international travel to another lab to learn new research techniques or begin or continue a collaboration to address biomedical questions. All proposals must be cross-disciplinary. Applicants with a doctoral degree in the physical, mathematical, or engineering sciences working on a biological problem are encouraged to apply. Conversely, proposals from biological scientists who desire to collaborate with a physical scientist, mathematician, or engineer are also encouraged to apply.
- Applicants must hold a Ph.D. in mathematics, physics, chemistry, computer science, statistics, or engineering at the time of application and interested in investigating research opportunities in the biological sciences are eligible. Biologists holding a doctorate degree at the time of application who are interested in working with physical scientists, mathematicians, engineers, chemists, statisticians, or computer scientists to incorporate their ideas and approaches to answering biological questions are eligible to apply.
- Only proposals addressing questions in the biomedical sciences will be accepted.
- All proposals must be cross-disciplinary.
- Grants must be made to U.S. or Canadian degree-granting institutions only.
It is strongly recommended that potential applicants review the Request for Proposals (see attachment) prior to accessing the eligibility questionnaire. All applicants will be required to complete a web-based questionnaire assessing their eligibility to apply for this award.
