Travel Funds

The old GSS Conference and Travel Awards have been completely replaced by the Office of Research and Graduate Studies Graduate Student Travel Awards, which are explained below. Please do not apply to the old GSS travel awards.

The Office of Research and Graduate Studies has opened applications for the RGS Graduate Student Travel Award for the coming year. The award promotes student academic involvement by partially funding travel costs associated with professional presentations at regional, national and international conferences. Developing presentation skills is critical to the success of graduate students, and conference presentations represent the best opportunity for developing those skills.

In FY 2013, the office is allocating $50,000 to the program, which can cover $100-$400 per student in costs of conference registration, mileage, airfare, hotel, per diem and international travel insurance. All full-time graduate students are eligible to apply, at least two weeks before their travel date.

We encourage graduate students to take advantage of this opportunity. A full explanation of eligibility requirements, funding levels and requirements, allocation decisions and deadlines, as well as the application form, are included on the travel award website, and the PDF version.
