HDFS Grad Student Travel Funding

The Department provides HDFS graduate students with nominal subsidies to help offset the cost of their travel to professional meetings.

You can request up to:

$550- For a graduate student PRESENTING and traveling to a professional conference (the maximum in any one academic year is $550).

$350- For a graduate student who has never attended ANY professional conference.  Student will attend for the FIRST time and will NOT present (eligible for this award only ONCE in their tenure as a graduate student).

Doctoral Candidates- IMPORTANT!  Doctoral Candidates who are eligible for travel funding from the Graduate School will FIRST exhaust the $750 awarded to them by the Graduate School BEFORE applying for departmental funds. Go to the Graduate School website to check your eligibility and to apply for GRAD SCHOOL travel funding.
