GSS/Graduate College Presentation Travel Funds

The Graduate College provides travel 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.
