FORHP/NCI Travel Grant Program

The Federal Office of Rural Health Policy (FORHP) and the National Cancer Institute (NCI) have partnered to offer a travel grant program for FORHP-funded rural health research centers to attend national cancer meetings.  Each of the ten FORHP-funded Centers are encouraged to attend two meetings over the course of the year.  The Rural & Minority Health Research Center is coordinating these efforts.  For more information about the program and application process, please contact Janie Godbold at 803-576-6036 or godboldj@mailbox.sc.edu
