Graduate Dean's Research Travel Grant

We are currently accepting applications for Dean's Travel Grant awards. Students can apply for funding for travel that takes place during academic year 2021-22. Students who would like their eligible travel related expenses from the 2020-2021 academic year to be considered for the 2021-2022 Dean's Travel Grant award are also welcome to apply.

The Graduate Dean's Research Travel Grant is designed to assist members of the graduate student community with travel to:

  • perform thesis-related research
  • present original work at conferences
  • attend workshops, professional development or programs pertinent to their graduate projects

The total amount of funds available and the number of applications varies each quarter and each application period is treated as an independent award process. The process is tailored to approve the maximum number of applications each quarter, while maintaining a useful award size.

Please complete the online Graduate Dean's Research Travel Grant application to apply. 

Priority is given to applicants seeking funds in the following order: 1) research related travel, 2) presenting at a conference, 3) funds for professional development, or 4) attending a conference. You may also write in the reason for your request for a travel grant.

The amount of the award given, if granted, will depend on the total number of qualifying applications received and the overall number of grants to be awarded. Typically, the maximum amount awarded per person is $500. The Graduate Division continually seeks additional funding to increase the overall amount of travel and research award funds.

If your application is successful, students will have the option of receiving funds via 1) an amazon eGift Card 2) a physical Visa gift card, or 3) fellowship payment (considered taxable income).

Please note that applications must be COMPLETE and CORRECT in order to be considered. 

All applications for the Fall 2021 funding call must be received by the review date of Monday, January 17, 2022.
