Travel Grant

The purpose of the Travel Grant Program shall be to assist graduate students in attending professional conferences. The Program is intended to cover expenses that graduate students would otherwise be forced to pay out-of-pocket. It is intended to supplement existing funds, not to supersede them.
  • Please note that travel grant reimbursments forms and receipts must be turned in with 30 days of the end of the conference.  No exceptions can be made, as the GSS re-releases the unused money to other grad students traveling to conferences.
  •  Travel Grant Application
