GUMDROP Travel/Recognition Grants
GUMDROP provides financial support for GUMDROP-member-sponsored undergraduate, graduate (MDs or PhDs in training or fellowship) within 5 years of training to attend ASCO, AUA, SUO, ESMO, AACR, or RTOG meetings. This award recognizes evidence of potential research success and allows the grantee to learn more about career options in the field of oncology and to build their network of potential collaborators. In the event the awardee’s institution pays travel costs, the grant may be used to fund costs of research. The travel/recognition grants apply to any GU research. Abstracts do not need to be accepted. Candidates must have proof of abstract submission (e.g. an email from meeting sponsor acknowledging submission). We only accept applications from a GUMDROP sponsored institute (in the Maryland, DC, and Virginia area).The sponsored institutions are listed on our Contact Us page. If you are collaborating with a physician at one of these institutions on your abstract please note who that is.
