Travel Awards and Grants

Departmental Grants & Awards

Each academic year (July 1 – June 30), psychology graduate students may apply for a department travel award and research grant.  There will be two opportunities to win a travel award per year (though you can’t win it twice), and one opportunity to win a research grant.  Priority will be given to students who have not previously won these awards.

The application deadlines for travel awards will be September 30 (covering expenses from July 1, 2019 – December 31, 2019) and February 1 (covering expenses from January 1, 2020 – June 30, 2020).  The application deadline for research grants will be September 30.

Travel awards are for a maximum of $200.00 and are to be used to help defray conference travel and lodging expenses.  This award may be combined with travel funds from other sources.

Research grants are for a maximum of $500.00.  In addition to completing the application, please ask your advisor to send a 1-page recommendation letter to Pam Cunningham.

Applications will be reviewed by the Director of Graduate Studies and the Graduate Executive Committee.  There are limited funds, so these are competitive awards.
