HGSA/SSGSA Travel Funding

Apply Now

The HGSA/SSGSA Travel Grant provides “last resort” funding to Humanities and Social Sciences graduate students. To qualify for funding, applicants must present a reasonable case that the relevant expense will further their own graduate research goals. This can include, but is not necessarily limited to, conference travel, research travel, and workshop/special training. Applicants may request a maximum of $500 per award. Each student is limited to one award per academic year and priority will be given to first-time applicants. Please read the application guidelines and requirements carefully before applying: HGSA/SSGSA Grant Application Guidelines.

The HGSA/SSGSA Grants Committee
The HGSA/SSGSA Grants Committee is a ten-person committee composed of graduate student representatives from each of the Humanities and Social Sciences departments. A single department cannot have more than one vote at grant meetings. It is each department’s responsibility to ensure they have a voting member present at meetings. The HGSA/SSGSA Grants Committee meets on a monthly basis to review grant proposals.
