Student Research & Conference Travel Fund Awards

Through the Student Research & Conference Travel Fund (SRCTF), The Graduate School provides modest funding to graduate students enrolled in degree programs to participate in professional development for the current academic year. Activities that may be funded include: presenting research at a conference, and/or travel for gathering data for research. Funding for additional types of travel may be approved on a case-by-case basis.

Any graduate student in good standing (as determined by The Graduate School) is eligible to submit a request for no more than half the expended amount (maximum $300) for reimbursement of expenses incurred. A graduate student is eligible to receive this award up to three times in their graduate career. Funding is limited and will be distributed on a first come, first served basis.
