THIS CONTEST IS NOW CLOSED. WE ARE OUT OF FUNDING FOR TRAVEL OCCURING 1/1/13-6/30/13.
INTERNATIONAL TRAVEL ONLY (excluding Mexico and Canada)The Graduate School offers grants for graduate students to present research findings at meetings or conferences outside Colorado. The Graduate School provides a travel grant of $500 for international conferences. Funds will be applied directly to the student’s tuition account. If the account balance is zero, a direct deposit refund will be disbursed by the Bursar’s office. The grant is treated like a fellowship and reported to the Office of Financial Aid; therefore, please be aware it may affect your student loan package. The grant is contingent on account funding by the Graduate School.ELIGIBILITY The applicant must be a full-time graduate student in good standing. The student must be traveling to a meeting/conference to present his/her own work on which he/she is the primary author, and is the sole presenter of work. The student must be enrolled during the term that the travel occurs (excluding summer). The student may receive funds from the Graduate School for travel only once per fiscal year (July 1 through June 30). A student receiving significant travel funding (over $1,000 for international) from another source (fellowship, scholarship, grant, departmental travel funds) is not eligible. Students whose units have standing travel funds should apply there first; if such money is available only as matching, then they may apply to the Graduate School first.
