If you are not a member of GPSA, you can be by filling out this application here and dropping it by the Graduate Studies Office with your $5 membership fee.
In receiving GPSA travel funds, you are required to give a 10-15 minute presentation of your experience or research at a GPSA event (even if you did not present at the conference). The presentations are scheduled every April during GPSA week.
GPSA also offers the opportunity to practice your presentation before you go to the conference. If you are presenting at a conference, would like to practice your presentation, and get feedback before you go to the conference, GPSA will provide a time and facility for a practice presentation. All you have to do is tell us when. Participating in a practice presentation will satisfy your requirement of presenting during GPSA week.
GPSA does not award travel grants for group travel. If you are seeking to apply as a group, you must request B.U.C. funds from the Student Government Association (SGA), and will not be eligible for GPSA funding.
Funding is allotted on a two-tier system. The first tier is for those members who are presenting at a conference. Students who are presenting and traveling up to 250 miles can receive up to $250. Students who are presenting and traveling more than 250 miles can receive up to $500. Students who are just attending (not presenting) and traveling up to 250 miles can receive up to $125. Students who are just attending (not presenting) and traveling more than 250 miles can receive up to $250. Mileage is based on round trip estimates. Because the funds are limited, the following priorities will be followed in the allocations:
