Travel Award

The Graduate Assembly Travel Award

The Graduate Assembly (GA) recognizes that many of our graduate students are at the forefront in their studies. A well-rounded graduate student's education often requires students to attend conferences and/or seminars not only on campus, but also nationally and/or internationally. For this reason, the GA has created the Travel Award to be used exclusively to help fund graduate student travel needs to conferences outside of the Bay Area.

The Travel Award is the only funding category where a funding workshop is NOT required to apply for GA funds.

Complete and submit the original Travel Award application to the Graduate Assembly in person no later than 5pm for fall and spring and no later than 3pm for summer on the deadlines listed below. Faxed, emailed, and mailed applications will not be accepted.

In addition to the Graduate Assembly Travel Award, graduate students may also apply to many other funds on campus that support student travel such as the Graduate Division's Conference Travel Grant, the ASUC AAVPG Academic Opportunity Funding (AOF), or the Student Opportunity Fund.
