Travel awards and research grants

Each academic year (July 1 – June 30), psychology graduate students may apply for a department travel award and research grant.  There will be two opportunities to win a travel award per year (though you can’t win it twice), and one opportunity to win a research grant.  Priority will be given to students who have not previously won these awards.

The application deadlines for travel awards will be September 1 (covering expenses from July 1, 2017 – December 31, 2017) and February 1 (covering expenses from January 1, 2018 – June 30, 2018).  The application deadline for research grants will be September 1.

Travel awards are for a maximum of $200.00 and are to be used to help defray conference travel and lodging expenses.  This award may be combined with travel funds from other sources.

Research grants are for a maximum of $500.00.  In addition to completing the application, please ask your advisor to send a 1-page recommendation letter to Pam Cunningham.

Applications will be reviewed by the Director of Graduate Studies and the Graduate Executive Committee.  There are limited funds, so these are competitive awards.
