[PAST EVENT] OGSR/GSA SUPPLEMENTAL CONFERENCE TRAVEL FUNDING
The OGSR/GSA Conference Funding competitively awards Arts & Sciences graduate students who wish to attend or present at research conferences in their field of study. Conference Funding is financed through the Office of Graduate Studies and Research; however, it is solely administered by the GSA. The goal of Conference Funding is to supplement other funding sources and to help offset the expenses that graduate students accrue advancing their scholarship and knowledge. Since conference experience and attendance are critical for the job market, Conference Funding is designed to encourage graduate student presence at conferences by addressing some of the limitations of other funding sources. The application deadline for conference travel taken during the period April 16, 2019 through August 31, 2019 is: 5:00 pm on March 15, 2019.
In order to receive your award - beginning with Summer 2019 for Conference Travel Grants, you must contact your department/program administrator immediately for instruction and guidance on the expenditure/reimbursement policy and procedure. Your administrator will guide you through Commonwealth and Institutional regulations. Please follow their instructions carefully. You will be required to submit original receipts for all expenses.
