Graduate Student Travel Assistance Grants (TAGGS)

The Graduate School offers Travel Assistance Grants for Graduate Students (TAGGS) annually, for each of two travel periods. For these travel periods, there are corresponding time intervals for submission of applications to request funding (see below). The maximum level of funding awarded is $800 per request.

Grants are offered in support of Masters and PhD graduate students who plan to travel to national or international conferences and give a presentation. Awards for travel to regional conferences are rare and require strong justification for consideration. For each graduate student, funding is limited to once per calendar year. No more than two requests will be accepted per department per application period. Including evidence of department financial support increases the probability of funding.

We are no longer accepting applications at this time. Applications for July 1 - December 31 travel periods will be accepted starting April 1.
