The Graduate School will assist in supporting the travel costs of graduate students who attend national or international meeting to formally present their research in poster or podium format. Contingent upon the availability of funds, the Graduate School will pay expenses of $120 per day up to a maximum of five days to cover allowable costs (travel, hotel, registration fees, meals, etc.) provided the department the student belongs to pays the rest.

Effective July 1, 2013, Graduate School students will be eligible for only one travel award.  Please submit the Travel Funds Application along with your abstract and invitation to the Graduate School office.
