Fall 2014 Travel Awards Application is Now Open
The Travel Awards application period for Fall 2014 is now open. The application form will be open from 6/30/2014-8/1/2014 and is open to all graduate and professional students with departments, programs, and organizations represented on the Graduate Student Council traveling between 9/1/2014-11/31/2014. In an effort to promote and encourage the Council's key goals of Advocacy, Community Building, and Research, we are proud to be able to fund awards in $100, $300, and $500 increments depending on the applicants level of participation at the event.
Due to the relatively high number of submissions and the natural limit to our funding, the awards application is a competitive one, and we cannot guarantee all applicants funding. However, we strongly encourage all interested applicants to apply and look forward to your submissions. From the Awards and Executive Committees of the Graduate Student Council, good luck!
