Graduate Student Travel Funds

The Student Research Committee and the Division of Research Affairs 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 Division of Research Affairs at [email protected] or (619) 594-5938.

Graduate Student Travel Funds

Eligibility: The Graduate Student Travel Funds are available to all degree-seeking SDSU graduate students with a post-baccalaureate cumulative GPA of at least 3.00.

Scope: The maximum award is $1,000, unless extenuating circumstances are well-justified.  Funds may be used for national or international travel to a conference where the student is presenting, or field work associated with research/scholarship.  Travel for short courses (or other training activities) is not supported.
