Do you have an opportunity to visit another research lab, institute, or centre in order to develop your research skills, provide training, or receive supervision and mentorship? We have funds to support graduate student training and development!
Graduate student and postdoctoral fellow members can request travel funding to visit research labs at other institutions and to take part in interdisciplinary skills training opportunities outside UBC. Applications will be considered on a rolling basis by the Language Sciences Steering Committee.
Graduate student and postdoctoral fellow members can also request funds for member-led initiatives, so long as their request is sponsored by at least one faculty member and involve members from more than one department.
