There are multiple funding opportunities available for students at the University of Iowa. This page is dedicated to provide information about the various existing sources that offer funds to help students travel to conferences where they can present their research done at the University of Iowa.

GSS is one of those sources. Graduate students who are traveling to a professional conference to present their original work may receive GSS Travel Funds once per year. Graduate students traveling for research (e.g., data collection) are also encouraged to apply for the GSS Supplementary Travel Award.

However, as stated above, GSS is not the only organization that provides travel funding for graduate students. The Graduate and Professional Student Government (GPSG), for example, provides grants for student travel, research, or community projects. 

Other funding sources information and details can be found here.

Want advice about personal finances as a graduate student? In 2015 GSS invited Emily Roberts of to lead us in a grad-student-oriented finances workshop. Her hour-long talk was comprised of a significant amount of information that was complemented by the worksheet she provided below. Please do not distribute.
