The Graduate Student Association is sponsoring University Programs and
Services Fees Travel Fund Workshops on Monday and Tuesday in the University
The workshops will explain guidelines for travel awards and give graduate
students an opportunity to learn about applying for travel funds and ask
questions about the process.
Panelists for the workshops will include GSA President Kadesha Washington,
GSA Vice-President Fred Coulter and Cynthia Stockdale from the UT
The UPSF Travel Fund annually contains $20,000 for graduate student travel,
and the money covers spring, summer and fall semesters. GSA and the Dean of
Students maintain the program.
Many colleges and departments allot money for travel, but some have more
than others, Washington said. The travel fund is a way for graduate
students to get more money to pay trip expenses, excluding food, when they
go to a conference to present a paper. Money is given based on merit
instead of need.
The workshops are being held to update graduate students on changes that
have been made to the application process. They will be held Monday in UC
rooms 226-227 and Tuesday in UC room 223, and start at 5 p.m. both
Workshops help grads travel
