Reimbursement of expenses

Reimbursement for attendance at conferences

Students may be reimbursed for some of the costs associated with participation at conferences related to Neuroscience. Reimbursement is conditional on the presentation of an abstract by the student. The amount reimbursed for each conference will be adjusted as a function of the expenses that are incurred and the budget that is available. An application for reimbursement (1 copy only), signed by the research director, together with a photocopy of the abstract can be submitted at any time after the conference. Although students may be reimbursed for more than one conference, the total annual amount can not exceed the annual sum allowed by the GRSNC (normally around $500).


Reimbursement for Internationally-offered Courses (e.g. Woods Hole)

The GRSNC offers awards for participation at some specialised training courses that are offered internationally. These awards are available to students enrolled in M.Sc and Ph.D programs under the direction of a member of the GRSNC, as well as to postdoctoral students, preferably at the beginning of their formation. The GRSNC will make a partial contribution to the expenses incurred, up to 50% of the admissible expenses (registration, transport, accommodation and meals), and with a maximum of $2,000 per student; the research direcotr must cover the rest of the costs.

Applications for an award may be submitted at any time. A letter from the research director should explain the previous training and the orientation of the student and must justify the budget requested. The letter should also give all pertinent information concerning the course, if possible including the official documentation of the course, including the syllabus and the list of instructors.

Approval of the award depends on the availability of funds.


Reimbursement of expenses incurred during the visits of possible future postdoctoral students

The GRSNC will reimburse some of the expenses related to the recruitment of students and postdoctoral fellows. The GRSNC will reimburse up to 50% of the expenses incurred, to a maximum of $500, for a visit to the laboraotory of a member of the GRSNC by a doctoral or postdoctoral student in the year preceding his proposed starting date. A request for reimbursement for such a visit can be made at any time before the visit. The only documentation required is a letter explaining the purpose and pertience of the visit. Reimbursement will occur upon presentation of the original receipts. Approval of the award depends on the availability of funds.


Reimbursement for training visits

The GRSNC will contribute to the costs associated with training visits that are undertaken in a laboratory ouside Montreal. The GRSMC will contribute up to 50% of the costs of transport and accommodation associated with such visits, up to a maximum of $2,000.

An application for this award may be made at any time. A letter from the research director should explain the previous training and the orientation of the student and must justify the budget requested. The letter should also give all pertinent information concerning the host laboratory.

Approval of the award depends on the availability of funds.


Reimbursement for costs related to external examiners

The GRSNC will contribute to the costs related to the visit of an external examiner for a Ph.D. thesis defence, on the condition that the examiner presents a seminar to which the members of the GRSNC are invited. Preferentially, the examiner should present this seminar as part of the seminar course, NRL 6040. The GRSNC will contribute 50% of the expenses inccurred (over and above those covered by the FES) up to a maximum of $1,000, depending on the available funds. This contribution will include an honorarium in addition to the expenses incurred.
