Deadline: Varies by time needed. GPSF can provide funding for your conference or research travel if NO other funding is available through other means, such as department funding, grants, or funds from your Advisor, Principle Investigator (PI), or Mentor. We award Individual and Group Travel Awards. This is a very competitive award, receiving many applications each cycle. Click here to learn more.


All GPSF funds, including the Travel Awards, come from student fees. All Travel Awards are processed as reimbursements; we cannot disburse funds until after your travel has been completed.
