Graduate Student Travel Subsidy
As we have done for the last several years, the Department will again provide some funding to students who are presenting papers or posters at national and international conferences during the period of August 1, 2018–July 31, 2019. Our funds are limited (faculty too have a very modest travel allotment), and given the large number of students presenting papers, we will need once again to limit the maximum for any student to $500 per year. We wish we could offer a larger subsidy.
In order to apply for departmental funding for travel to present a paper or poster, there are two stipulations:
1) The conference must be a major national-level one, such as AIA, SCS [formerly the APA], or CAMWS (but not CAMWS-Southern Section), or an international conference. Graduate student-run conferences at other universities are not eligible for any departmental funding. Special topic conferences, especially those with peer-reviewed submission of abstracts, will be considered.
2) You must be the principal author or presenter if the paper or poster is jointly authored; only one travel award per paper or poster can be made.
3) Students must demonstrate that they have applied to COGS (Council Of Graduate Students) for additional funds. Female students must also apply to the Owenby fund administered by the Office of the Dean of Arts and Sciences. The Departmental travel subsidy is not contingent upon success in these applications; rather it is contingent upon you making the effort to apply to the outside sources.
To apply for the travel subsidy, please complete the form available on the Department website under Forms for Graduate Students, and submit it to the Chair of the Department in hard copy, along with the supporting documents. You may apply for the subsidy before the announcement of acceptance of your paper or abstract. Documentation of application to COGS (and Owenby if appropriate) will be required before the final approval of the travel subsidy.
If your expenses for one conference are less than the $500, you may apply for a second subsidy, but the total for any one year per student will be $500.
NOTE: Because of University rules regarding travel, you must submit your application 1 month prior to traveling; thus for AIA/SCS you need to apply by Wednesday, November 28th, and for CAMWS you need to apply by Friday, March 1st. Note that COGS and A&S will have different deadlines.
If you have questions about the budget (especially about how to determine the meal per diem), please consult Ramsey Mullins, our department's travel representative. This year we will return forms that do not have the meal per diem properly calculated; this is part of learning about budgets and applications.
We wish you the best of success in submitting papers for presentation!
