The GSA provides limited support for graduate student travel to professional conferences. Grants of up to $500 are provided to help students present papers and posters, participate in panel discussions, and attend conferences, lectures, and seminars that contribute to the enhancement of their programs of study. GSA Travel Grants may be applied to travel expenses only, and not to conference registration or organizational membership fees.
Deadlines: Students may apply for only one grant per academic year. Applications will be considered during three seperate travel periods, as outlined below.
