Deadline for Graduate School Travel Award department nominations
Monday, October 15, 2018
Opportunity Text: 

The deadline for the next round of Graduate School travel awards will be Nov 1, for travel between Dec 1 and April 30. Nominations should be submitted to Graduate Committee by October 15 so we can make a selection. Please see for the description of this award.

Only one nomination can be submitted to Graduate School by our program for this competitive and prestigious award. Students should work with their advisers to be nominated, and Graduate Committee (GCOM) makes a selection from those recommended. A recommendation to GCOM should include a student's CV, a statement from their adviser on the significance of this particular travel to the student's goals, confirmation of the talk/activities planned, a draft budget, and other documents, all in a format to be announced by Graduate School. New this year: Graduate School requires that a Program of Study has been filed at least a week before the nomination. The nomination requires matching funds; please work with your adviser on how to obtain matching funds.

As in previous years, graduate students interested in obtaining travel support from the department should contact Department Head directly. More information is available at
