Travel Fellowships

Travel Fellowships

It brings us great joy to announce that RECOMB is once again extending invitations for student travel fellowships this year. These prestigious fellowships are selectively awarded to students who have co-authored accepted papers, offering a generous sum of up to $2000 to defray the expenses associated with attending RECOMB, including registration, travel, and lodging. The deadline for submitting applications is January 5th, 2024, and the recipients will be informed of their awards by January 10th, 2024 TBD.


Q. "I have a poster presentation. Can I apply for a travel award?"
- Travel awards are prioritized for students presenting their RECOMB 2024 papers at the conference. Unfortunately, due to limited funds, we do not have the opportunity to support poster presenters.

Q. "What does the fellowship cover?"
- The fellowships cover conference registration (early registration student rate), travel, and lodging, up to $2000. Any incidentals (food, taxi, phone charges, parking, tips, etc.) and expenditures exceeding the fellowship amount will not be covered.

Q. "I am traveling from CityC and flying to CityD after the conference. Is this OK?"
- The travel award will fund flights to and from your hometown only. We cannot provide reimbursements for extended itineraries.

Q. "I forgot to register early for the conference. Is this OK?"
- We will only cover early student registration rates. Students will be responsible for the difference. Please register early.

Q. "I am not the first author but presenting the paper on behalf of my co-authors. Is this OK?"

Q. "When will I receive my funds?"
You will fill out a reimbursement form after the conference. The Fellowship Chairs will communicate with you about the procedure.

Q. "How will I receive my funds?"
A check will be mailed to the address you provided.
