the travel fund is not currently accepting applications. We will reopen on july 1st.
The Graduate Council Travel Fund offers grants to graduate students to attend academic conferences and other events. In 2016-17 we were able to support the travel expenses of over 400 graduate students. The Travel Fund has a rolling deadline, so the only requirement is that you apply at least 10 days in advance of your travel date.
Applicants to the advanced fund must be applying for travel to academic conferences to present their own original research. Awardees are granted $600 in reimbursement upon return.
Applicants to the basic fund can apply for funding to conferences, case competitions, and other trips related to their academic program. Awardees are granted $350 in reimbursement upon return.

join our review committee
We are always looking for graduate students to help review applications. Learn what other students are doing on campus, and review at any time, even from the comfort of your home. The committee meets during times of high application volume as necessary.
