Travel grant program
The Graduate Student Travel Grant program encourages the presentation of research results or scholarly activity by providing travel grants of up to $300 for degree-seeking students enrolled in master’s or doctoral programs. Awards are made without regard to quotas or distribution among fields and departments; however, no student will be funded for more than one trip in an academic year.
Funding is limited, so students applying to the program are not guaranteed support. If you are receiving funds from your department/grant, please let us know so we can work with them for your reimbursement.
*Funds for the fall 2016 semester have been exhausted. Funds are still available for the 2017 spring and summer semesters.
The American Educational Research Association’s fellowship and funding opportunities are dedicated to enhancing the pool of diverse graduate students and early career scholars in education-related fields.
