Graduate School Travel award nominations deadline is November 1, see http://gradschool.oregonstate.edu/awards/travel-award. In particular, November 1 is for travel between December 1 and April 30. Since the department can only nominate one student in a given period, Graduate Committee selects a nominee for this competitive and prestigious award using similar criteria as specified by Graduate School, which we determine based on the student's nomination packet. The department deadlines for such nominations this year are October 18; the nomination packet submitted to Graduate Committee should have all the information as required by Graduate School.
Department graduate student travel awards sponsored by OSU Foundation are intended to supplement the submission, with the same deadline. Graduate Committee will handle these together.
