In addition, this fund makes travel money available on a competitive basis to all PDFs employed at Queen’s.

Post-Doctoral Travel Award

This program provides support for PDFs to travel to conferences to present their scholarly work, or to take part in workshops, or to travel to research sites to learn new skills and techniques. Such experiences should clearly enhance their training but cannot be funded through other sources (e.g., supervisor’s grant, external fellowships).

The Office of Post-Doctoral Training administers the Post-Doctoral Travel Award program.  Deadlines are on November 1st and April 1st. Further information will be made available closer to the next deadline. For more information, please see
