Travel Grant program

The Graduate Student Travel Grant program for graduate students has been established to encourage the presentation of the results of research or scholarly activity by providing small travel grants for degree-seeking students enrolled in master’s or doctoral programs. This year, there will be grants awarded of up to $200. Awards will be made without regard to quotas or distribution among fields and departments; however, no student will be funded for more than one trip in an academic year. Funds are limited and students applying to the program are not guaranteed support. If you are receiving funds from your department/grant, please let us know so we can work with them for your reimbursement.
