International Travel Grant Opportunity for Doctoral Students -

The Office of International Affairs is offering a new funding program to help doctoral students attend conferences to make presentations or do other research and scholarly work outside the United States. Through the Doctoral Travel Grants for Global Opportunities (DTG-GO program), grants of up to $1,500 will be awarded three times a year. The Office of International Affairs established this program to help doctoral students participate in international experiences by providing a subsidy to help defray their out-of-pocket expenses for work and travel outside the United States. The goal is to reduce individual students’ expenses related to professional activities and to provide financial support for doctoral students who might not otherwise be able to travel abroad in pursuit of their scholarship and research. To learn more about the grant and to apply, visit https://global.lehigh.edu/dtg-go . Please Note: Given that our pool of funds is limited and we must spread them across the entire year, applicants may not be awarded the full amount they request and students may receive no more than ONE Doctoral Travel Grant for Global Opportunities per year.

ELECTING UNIT REPS - All departments are responsible for electing their unit reps for the next academic year.  Fall 2017 and Spring 2018 meetings will begin the first week of class.   GSS meetings take place every other week during the academic year, and are on Wednesdays at noon.  Please visit Unit Reps to determine how many representatives make up your unit.  Where there is more than one department making up a unit (due to small departments), each department in that unit gets one representative, making sure that all departments are represented.  Please have your department coordinator email the name of your new representative to ingss@lehigh.edu.
