BioXFEL Graduate Student Cross-Training Scholarship

Published on


BioXFEL is committed to providing our students with opportunities to diversify their skill sets and integrate themselves into our highly multidisciplinary Center. In addition to the workshops, conferences and online courses, we will now be offering our students the opportunity to train in another technique in another laboratory within the Center. This support will come in the form of a scholarship that can be used to pay for travel, housing and incidental costs incurred during the training. The maximum for this is not to exceed $5,000 per scholarship.
