PDA Travel Award

The Postdoctoral Association Travel Award is designed to provide financial support to Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health Postdoctoral Fellows and Research Associates who plan to attend a conference. The award is intended for postdoctoral fellows who have not recently attended a conference and are early in their training at the Harvard Chan School; however, everyone is encouraged to apply.

Five to six awards, with up to $500 for virtual conferences and $1500 for in-person conferences, are offered. Awards are given in the Fall and Spring semesters.

Previous winners of the Postdoctoral Association Travel Awards are NOT eligible to apply.

The Travel Awards are managed by the PDA’s Chair of Awards Committee.
