Graduate Student Travel Funds

The Student Research Committee and the College of Graduate Studies would like to invite SDSU graduate students to apply to the Graduate Student Travel Funds.  These support travel associated with scholarly research and creative activities.  There are two funds, and each has a different deadline and set of constraints.  Students may apply to both funds for the same travel, but can only be awarded from one fund.  The Student Success Fee provides a larger source of funding. 

Questions regarding these travel funds should be directed to the College of Graduate Studies at [email protected] or (619) 594-5213.
