- Progress Report
A Progress Report must be completed and should contain the following information:
- By February 25 (of the year following completion of travel), the awardee must submit a one to two-page PDF progress report (no form or template) describing the travel activity and what was accomplished via email to email@example.com. Include any scientific publications or presentations that result from the CRTG award. Scientific publications or presentations that result from the CRTG must acknowledge the awardee's receipt of a Burroughs Wellcome Fund Collaborative Research Travel Grant.

- By February 25 (of the year following completion of travel), the recipient’s home institution must complete and submit a financial report in PDF via email to firstname.lastname@example.org. A balance of $500 or less may be kept by the recipient's home institution.
*Please note: Recipients of the BWF Collaborative Research Travel Grant program are expected to participate in surveys and outcome evaluations. Contact from BWF staff or contractors who are conducting outcome evaluations of BWF grant programs may continue for a number of years after the grant has terminated.
Instructions for completing the on-line forms:
Determine your system software. Adobe Reader is widely used because it is free software (easily downloadable from http://www.adobe.com) that allows you to complete the form online, print the form, convert it to PDF format, and email it to BWF. Adobe Acrobat is purchased software required to save PDF files. “Acrobat” allows you to complete the form online, save the form and data to your system, and immediately email the PDF form to BWF.
With "Reader" software, print the form you just completed (do not use the Email button on the form). Convert the paper form to a PDF file by some electronic means and submit the PDF file.
With "Acrobat" software, after completing the form, click the Email button and you will be prompted to save your file to your system. If you are not prompted, it is likely that you do not have the required software, must print the form and follow step 2 above. If you email this form without Acrobat software, it will email a blank form and you will lose your data.
To complete the on-line forms, click on the first blank line and begin typing. To advance to the next line, press the keyboard "Tab" key until the form is completely filled out. Be sure to press the return key after the last entry to complete the process.
Submit one copy of the Progress and Financial Report by February 25 of the year following completion of travel to email@example.com.
