 Funding for Statistical Support

Click here to request funding for statistical support.

Students are eligible for up to 4 hours of statistical support during you tenure at FSM (two 2-hour sessions). Each form submission counts for 2 hours of statistical support. If you require 4 hours of statistical support, please fill out this form twice (it's ok to resubmit the same form if no changes). 

 Funding for Poster Printing

Please fill out the poster printing request form.

FSM Student Research will cover poster printing costs for any conference or any FSM-sponsored event. MD students not in MSTP are eligible for one printing request per poster (e.g., if you're presenting the same poster more than once, please reuse the poster. If you are presenting multiple different posters, you may print each poster once).

Once you fill out the form, your request will be automatically sent to Quartet Digital Printing. You will be notified by email when your poster is ready to be picked up. Please allow a minimum of 3 days for your poster to be printed.

 Funding for Conference Travel

Funding is available for conference travel for students to present their first-author research (AOSC or not). Please refer to the FSM Student Research Conference Reimbursement Fund Page to learn more about eligibility and to request funding.
