Due to COVID-19, we are no longer accepting graduate student research and travel grant applications for 2019-2020. The 2020-2021 application will become available during the summer.

Limited grants are available from the Dean of the Faculty of Arts and Sciences and the Graduate School to support graduate student travel to conferences.  As part of the conference travel fund application, please include documentation of acceptance for the conference and an abstract of the presentation.  

The application must be submitted prior to the conference. If awarded, this grant will be used to reimburse travel after it has occurred. Applicants should be aware that reimbursements for travel must follow university policies and procedures.

These grants are made possible through funds donated to the Arts and Sciences Academic Excellence Funds. Students may be asked to present their research or meet with donors on selected occasions.

Grants up to $500.
Accepted on a rolling basis. 
Applicants who are awarded these funds must apply for consideration for the Graduate Research and Creative Works Symposium tentatively scheduled for Tuesday, April 14, 2020.
