Travel Awards Committee Standing Rules and Regulations (includes the criteria that the review committee uses for reviewing applications)
The GPSA Travel Award has increased beginning April 2008 as follows:
1. Up to $900 for international travel
2. Up to $700 for US travel
3. Up to $350 for regional travel (Washington, Idaho, and Oregon)
Please note that GPSA may lower the amount awarded to up to 70% of what had been requested depending on funding capabilities.
Due dates are every 2 months on the 15th (July 15, Sept 15, Nov 15, Jan 15, Mar 15 and May 15); if the 15th falls on a Saturday, Sunday, or holiday, the due date will be the next business day at 4:00pm. Applications are due at 4:00pm in the GPSA Dropbox in Morrill Hall room 201A.
Masters students are eligible for one travel award, PhD students are eligible for 2 travel awards during their entire time at UI.
Graduate students are only eligible to apply for funding if their department has a GPSA Senator and if their department is in good standing with GPSA. A number of departments DO NOT currently have GPSA representatives, and thus are not currently eligible for travel awards.
To see if your department is represented please check the GPSA representatives list at Contacts page -- click on the link to 'Current GPSA representatives' -- see the 'Count 2011-2012' tab on the far left in that Excel spreadsheet for Department Eligibility/Default Status and to see the senate meeting attendance record.
