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 on a rolling basis throughout each fiscal year.

Applications must be submitted by the deadline for the cycle in which your travel took place and will be reviewed after the cycle closes. Applications submitted in the incorrect cycle or without all necessary documentation will be voided. You must be a current student in order to be reimbursed. Graduating students must submit their applications at least one month before the last day of classes in the semester they are graduating and should reach out to the committee chairs after submitting.

  • Cycle 1: July 23, 2021 -- October 22, 2021. Due: October 22, 2021
