Conference Travel Grant

Eligibility for Conference Travel Grant

All applicants must be graduate or professional students at Dartmouth College from either 1) School of Graduate and Advanced Studies, 2) Thayer School of Engineering, 3) The Dartmouth Institute, and presenting their own research (talk/poster) at the conference.

A student may only receive a GSC Conference Travel Grant once every three academic years at Dartmouth College, including interruptions of student status.

Travel Grant Funding and Procedure

One award of $1,000 will be granted per term.

Applications for the GSC Conference Travel Grant must be accompanied by a letter of recommendation from the student's advisor or program chair. An email will be automatically sent to the listed individual notifying them of your application submission. It is the responsibility of the applicant to ensure the letter of recommendation is received by the application deadline.

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 to publish.
  2. Submit a photograph of the student presenting at the conference.
  3. Submit a Business Expense Reimbursement (BER) within 30 days of the conference, following the funding reimbursement procedure found on the GSC website.

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

Eligibility for the GSC Conference Travel Grant is based on presentation of the recipient's own research at a conference. In the event a recipient will no longer present their work at the conference, the GSC Academic Chair must be notified immediately.
