Research and Travel Grants

 GSA Research and Travel Grants

The new GSA Research and Travel Grants program has been expanded to include funding for research related supplies and professional development.

The GSA Research and Travel Grants program provides funding for the following: 

  • Travel: This includes travel for thesis-related research, conferences, workshops, and professional development.
  • Research Related Supplies: This includes funding to help cover the costs of supplies, subscriptions, and books needed for graduate students' research. 

In one academic year, you may be awarded up to $1000.

The maximum award for travel is $500 for domestic travel and $750 for international travel per applicant per academic year. The maximum award for research related supplies is $750 per applicant per academic year.

You may apply before or after travel for conferences or professional development (up to two calendar years after) and before or after purchasing supplies. If you are applying for a grant before travel, registration for your conference/workshop/professional development must be occurring before the next round of applications.

Deadlines for submitting applications to the front desk of the Grad Student Commons or via intercampus mail to the Grad Student Commons are as follows:

  • Round 1: November 16, 2018, 5pm 
  • Round 2: TBD (Winter 2019)
  • Round 3: TBD (Spring 2019) 

Late travel grants will absolutely not be accepted.

Applications are processed at the end of each grant cycle. You will receive an email notification letting you know whether your application has been approved, conditionally approved, or rejected by the GSA within 3 weeks of submitting your application.
