|UW Graduate and Professional Student Senate|
The Graduate and Professional Student Senate is pleased to announce the relaunching of its popular Travel Grants Program for autumn of 2013!
Responding to considerable student demand across our campus, the reformed program will contribute funds to qualifying individuals’ travel expenses for active conference participation in the US and abroad. This is done in an effort to facilitate and promote the intellectual and professional development of graduate and professional students at the University of Washington, but also to strengthen the University’s prominence in the greater scholarly community. Students whose conference participation might otherwise go unfunded, have strong academic credentials and are making fair progress towards their respective degrees are encouraged to apply. Full program details and application guidelines will be made available on the GPSS website later this spring.
In the meantime, we are continually looking for academic travel funds in other places. This is a slow process, and we encourage students in the meantime to solicit information about funding opportunities, if available, within their own departments. Also, if you know of funding opportunities for graduate students please feel free to contact us with that information as well so that we can share this with others. That being said, the UW Graduate School does offer some student travel awards in coordination with student departments. You can find information about these awards here. We hope you can bear with us at this time and we apologize for any inconvenience this change may have caused.
