Internal Funding

Graduate Student Travel Awards: The School of Education is committed to apprenticing doctoral students into the educational research community through participation in local, national, and international educational research conferences. Travel funds support attendance at educational research conferences and may include conference registration fees, transportation, lodging, and meal expenses. Priority is given first to students who are presenting authors or co-authors on a paper or a poster presentation; second to co-authors (not presenting); and third to those attending (but not as an author or co-author on a paper). Travel must be completed by the end of the fiscal year (June 30) in which the award is granted.

To apply for this award, please complete the Graduate Student Travel Award application form. Annual submission deadlines are November 1 and February 1.

The Graduate Research and Scholarship Award (GRASA) supports individual or collaborative doctoral student research that is likely to be publishable as it seeks to answer questions of significant national importance in education and promises trustworthy findings based on a sound and rigorous methodological design. During each academic year, two awards are given (one in the Fall term and one in the Spring term). Unsuccessful applicants may resubmit for consideration in a subsequent term.
