Conference Travel Grant

Eligibility for Conference Travel Grant

Any graduate student presenting their own research, either a talk or a poster, is eligible to apply for the GSC Conference Travel Grant.

Travel Grant Funding and Procedure

Awards of $250 will be granted per term to help defray the costs of travel to and from the conference.

Applications for the GSC Conference Travel Grant must be accompanied by a current CV and a letter of recommendation from the student's advisor or program chair.

All recipients of the GSC Conference Travel Grant must:

  1. Host a small presentation/talk open to graduate students to hear about your experience, or write an article for the GSC website.
  2. Submit a photograph of the student presenting at the conference.
  3. Submit a BER within two weeks of the conference, indicating that they are recipients of the GSC Conference Travel Grant in the "Comments" sections of the form. 

Failure to adhere to these conditions is forfeit of the travel grant.

Application Timeline

Travel grants are awarded the first day of term in which the conference is held. The travel grant committee meets during term interim periods to review upcoming applications.

To guarantee your application for consideration, all materials must be submitted by the last day of the term preceding the term in which the conference is held (e.g., If the conference is in Spring term, then the application deadline is the last day of Winter term). Early submissions are recommended.

Applications for conferences held during the interim period will be assigned to the application pool for the following term (e.g., If the conference is held during the Winter interim period, the application will be considered in the Spring term application pool).
