The Travel Funds Committee allocates funds from the Graduate College to graduate student applicants for the purpose of presenting their graduate work at meetings, symposia, conferences, or other professional or academic gatherings. As of Fall 2010, we will also be offering limited Supplemental Travel Awards for graduate students who must travel for research. Please see the Funding page for more details on both of our awards.

The committee works tirelessly to make the application process easy and streamlined. This committee also helps graduate students identify other University-based funding sources. Contact the committee chair(s) for more information.
