Research Travel Grant

Research Grant: For students planning to visit an archive, attend a training workshop, or use a research facility.

Due to graduate student need, the GSO is piloting this new travel grant program that specifically supports research travel.

  • To qualify for a Spring 2016 grant your trip must occur between December 1, 2015, and May 31, 2016, outside the Boston area.

  • Deadline to apply for Spring 2016 grants: Thursday, October 15th, 2015, 11:59 PM

During this pilot program, the GSO will awards two travel grants for travel during Winter/Spring 2015/16 (exact dates listed above) to facilitate graduate student research.  Each award can be as high as $500.  Travel grant winners are selected the semester before the trip is taken, but awards are not distributed until after receipts are submitted.

Who is eligible:  Any graduate student from a department represented at 3 or more GSO meetings in Fall 2015. (see below for attendance to date) Anyone from your department can represent your department at a meeting, even you. A list of people who have recently represented your department (if anyone) is available here.
