Graduate Student RCTF Travel Assistance

The Department of Anatomy and Neurobiology is committed to ensuring our students have an enriched training experience. The Department is utilizing a portion of the Research Challenge Trust Fund dollars, contributed by the State of Kentucky, to subsidize graduate student travel. This travel is generally defined as the costs incurred to:

  • present the student's research at a national meeting. In this case students must first apply to The Graduate School for their Student Support I ($400 annual allotment)
  • attend a second meeting to present research during the same calander year (in which case Graduate School funding is generally not available)
  • travel to some other site to be trained in a specific technique not available at the University of Kentucky (where an application to the Graduate School for Student Support II has also been made.

Each request is limited to $500.
These monies are meant to contribute to offsetting the overage travel costs charged to their advisor's grant. Further information is available by contacting the Director of Graduate Studies (Dr. W. Cass -
