Faculty Travel and Career Development Awards (Up to $1,000)

Applications Accepted Any Time

Through the generosity of the Friends of MCW, the Cancer Center is offering MCW faculty members up to $1,000 for travel to a meeting or other activity, such as a workshop, that will enhance the faculty member’s ability to conduct cancer research. 

The travel or other activity must have a cancer focus. The travel funds are restricted to attendance at a cancer-relevant meeting at which the faculty member will make a research presentation. Pre-approval and proof of acceptance of a first-authored abstract for presentation is required.  

For funds to attend a workshop or participate in any other activity that promotes career development in cancer research, you must receive prior approval from the Cancer Center.


Please note that the MCW Cancer Center has adopted a policy of not giving travel funds to a Cancer Center member in consecutive calendar years in order to spread these limited funds around.
