Student Biological Research Grants provide funds to students to enable research opportunities they might not otherwise be able to undertake.  The research must be designed by the participant and a sponsoring faculty member and be conducted at the College of William & Mary.  It is expected to eventually result in publication and / or presentation.

Student Conference Travel Awards for Biological Research are made to help defray the costs of travel to present the results of research at national or regional meetings. The student will be expected to be the first author on a poster or a presentation of work that was done in major part by the student and done at the College of William & Mary.

Applications for both programs are due in mid- September.  Students can pick up an application form with detailed information from the Biology Department office (Millington 116).  For further information pleasecontact the Program Director, Margaret Saha, in the Department of Biology, 221-2407, [[mssaha]].
