Doctoral Student Travel Grants

GGSE has a small amount of funding available to use toward the cost of traveling to present at a conference or meeting.  If you have had a presentation or poster accepted for a conference or meeting and do not qualify for the Academic Senate’s doctoral student travel grant, you have the opportunity to apply for travel funds through your applicable department.

To receive theses funds, applicants must be registered in at least 8 units and be in good academic and financial standing during the quarter in which the funds are received.  The conference must be important to the student’s discipline.  To qualify, applicants must be invited or selected to present a paper, research, poster or exhibit at a major professional conference or meeting.
