Graduate Student Open Access Grant

Purpose:

The purpose of this program is to support the graduate students and their supervisors defraying the cost of publication fees for papers that require open access. This support is made available for graduate students for their first time publishing a paper where they are listed as first author.

Eligibility: graduate students who are UTM affiliated and are supervised by a Biology faculty member

Value: up to $1,000

Duration: One time only

Application Process:
Notify Mihai Baetu (mihai.baetu@utoronto.ca) when the fees become due

Conditions:
The graduate student must be the first author for the published paper

Disbursement:
The funds (up to $1,000) will be transferred to the PI account where the open access fees were initially charged. Alternatively, the support can be disbursed though an expenses reimbursement process following the UofT Policy, if the fee was paid out of the pocket through a personal credit card.
