New travel reimbursement benefit available

Recognizing, supporting and encouraging scholarship within our program is important to our overall program goals. To help support current students and graduates within the past year who are presenting at a national or international conference on a project that came out of a program course or their final master’s project, we are making available a limited number of travel awards, up to $300 each, to help offset costs that are not otherwise reimbursed or funded.

Eligibility and Limitations

Students and recent alumni who meet the following criteria could apply for funding up to $300.
  • You must be a current student, in good standing, or a graduate within the past year.
  • Your presentation must be at a national or international conference on an outcome from one of your courses in the program or from your final master’s project.
  • The funds you request, up to $300, can be for registration and/or travel costs that will not be reimbursed or paid by your home institution or another funding source.
  • If you are Cincinnati Children’s faculty and staff, the payment cannot replace or offset divisional funds, pro funds, grant funds, or other sources of travel funding, or cover travel costs in excess of hospital travel expense guidelines.

Cost and restrictions

Please keep the following in mind:

  • Students cannot receive more than one award in a fiscal year (July 1 – June 30).
  • Students cannot receive more than two awards in total.
  • A maximum of 10 awards totaling up to $3000 will be awarded in any single fiscal year.


Prior to your presentation at the conference, submit the request form to the program coordinator.

The request will be reviewed for eligibility by program faculty, and you will be emailed acceptance or denial or a request for additional information if needed.

We ask that you share a copy of your presentation with us.

After the presentation, submit detailed receipt(s) for the expense. Payment will be made after receipt of the proof of expense.
