We will not accept new applications for any travel awards until national and international travel resumes.
The Graduate College provides conference funding assistance to graduate students who present their research at conferences, meetings, symposia and similar professional or academic gatherings. The funds are allocated by the GSS Travel Funds Committee to deserving applications at multiple deadlines throughout each fiscal year. GSS/Graduate College Presentation Travel Funds Awards are awarded for travel to both domestic and international conferences as well as for virtual conference fees.
The table below lists each GSS/Graduate College Presentation Travel/Virtual Conference Fund deadlines (all applications are due by 11:59PM) with each deadline's eligible conference date range. Please only apply to cycles in which your conference dates are listed, meaning that do not submit your application until after the previous deadlines. For example, if you are applying for the Nov. 8 cycle, do not submit an application until after Oct. 4. Applications to cycles for conferences that fall outside of the conference date range will result in a disqualification of the application.
GSS/Graduate College Presentation Travel/Virtual Conference Funds are submitted and processed strictly electronically via the University Workflow system. Applications will only be considered for conferences that fall within the conference date ranges for the respective cycle (see table above). At the point of each deadline, the committee will review the applications of conference travel. Please read all instructions prior to submitting your application online here for travel funds and online here for virtual conference funds.
If you have any additional questions about GSS/Graduate College Presentation Travel/Virtual Conference Funds, please contact the committee chair(s).
