Student Travel Funding
Funds are available to DOCTORAL graduate students for assistance with expenses relating to travel to present research at professional meetings only. Travel funding is not provided for participation in or presentation at professional workshops or tuition for coursework. Doctoral students past the Qualifying Examination take precedence in funding decisions over doctoral students still in coursework. The Graduate School Funding Office provides:
• up to $400 for doctoral students presenting research/abstract at a domestic conference.
• Note: This funding may be considered taxable income. Taxable amounts are withheld from awards for international students. Recipients should keep adequate records to support any expenses that may be excludable when filing income tax forms. Students are required to keep a copy of their application documents for their own files. Be prepared to provide receipts for all expenses upon request by the Graduate School.
• DEADLINE: The 15th of each month prior to the month of travel (or the next business day if the office is closed).
Travel funding decisions are final, and awards are not automatic.
No funding will be considered for:
Please be advised: If a student is unable to attend the conference for which travel funding was granted, the student agrees to return the awarded amount to Student Account Services and notify the Student Travel Funding Officer at firstname.lastname@example.org.
