It is the intention of the Graduate Student Organization (GSO) to recognize outstanding work by OHSU graduate students, and to contribute to their professional development by helping fund travel to distant sites for scholarly purposes. A number of graduate students per term will receive reimbursement for personal out-of pocket costs up to $400 for scholarly travel. Additionally, the OHSU School of Medicine Alumni Association (SMAA) grants one $500 travel award in the Spring, Summer, and Fall terms. This SMAA award will be granted to the applicant with the greatest demonstrated financial need. Students must retain receipts from purchases with a personal debit or credit card for their travel, and reimbursement will occur once the student returns from the trip. The award funds can be applied to conference fees, lodging, food, and other necessary expenses, including travel fares. Due to limited funds, preference will be given to senior students.
