Departmental Financial Support of Research-related Travel

Here is some information about how the department will support you if you want to go to a conference or workshop.

Who is eligible?

Physics graduate students who have been accepted as speakers or as poster presenters at a conference or APS meeting (or equivalent meeting). Astrophysics students should contact their DGS.

How much can you get?

Your lump-sum award will be approximately half of your estimated total travel costs subject to a maximum of $750 per trip and a $1500 career total. After the trip, if your actual expenses are less than what you estimated, the award will be reduced accordingly.

How often can I use this fund?

As many times as you want as long as the career total of $1500 is not exceeded.

How do you apply for it?

Travel awards will be given as lump-sum travel fellowships. Students must submit a formal request BEFORE travel begins. To apply for travel funds, complete the Travel Grant request form found in the Graduate Program section of MyPhys. If approved, the student will receive a fellowship not to exceed $750 or half of the total estimated cost of the trip, whichever is less.
