Vere D. Wenger Travel Award Guidelines
Vere D. Wenger Travel Awards are available to help defray partial travel expenses from faculty and staff members in all fields (humanities, law, medicine, natural and social sciences, etc), from all of the Colleges on The University of Iowa campus who present papers at conferences and/or who attend professional meetings which contribute to the knowledge of cancer or for the well-being of cancer patients. The purpose of these funds is to support travel for researchers who have no other source of support for such travel. We require applications be submitted at least 30 days prior to the trip, and awards must be applied for and approved before the meeting has occurred. These awards support travel within the US and Canada, additional International locations are not eligible.
***Update: As of July 2020, Wenger Travel Awards may also be used to cover registration costs for Conferences and Meetings that will be attended virtually.
Decisions concerning use of these funds are made by the Leaders of the 4 formal research programs of the HCCC https://cancer.uiowa.edu/areas-cancer-research. Inquiries from HCCC members, trainees, and staff in need of support to travel to a cancer meeting should be made to the Program Leader most appropriate for the research being supported. HCCC Administration is happy to assist applicants who are unsure about which Program Leader to contact.
The following will be required before requests will be funded:
- Information on the dates, location, and sponsorship of the meeting
- A letter of acceptance of the paper and/or a program listing the presentation
- An abstract of the paper
The following will be required within 30 days after the meeting:
- Submit a 1/2 page report on what information was learned from the conference/meeting
- Report should be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org, who will then forward to HCCC Leadership and the HCCC Program Leaders who made the award
