Graduate Student Request for Travel Funds

For students in the French graduate degree programs, this is the initial application to request a conference travel award. Required documentation must be submitted no later than two weeks prior to travel. For further details, please see the French Fellowship Policy.

Italian Studies students who wish to receive funding for conference travel are highly recommended to speak to their Graduate Advisor as early as possible, preferably at the start of the fall semester.


Those who are advised to request Departmental funds should also use the Graduate Student Request for Travel Funds.  It must be submitted along with proof of conference participation and an abstract of the presentation a minimum of two weeks prior to travel.  


Students who are approved for a Professional Development Award from the Graduate School should compile the necessary documents, as outlined in the PDA information below, and contact the Graduate Coordinator when ready to apply.  


International Travel
International travel for academic purposes must be authorized by the International Office.  Failure to receive proper authorization could affect your scholarship.  Please review the Travel Authorization website and turn in all required paperwork at least two weeks prior to your departure. 


Professional Development Awards (PDA)

The Office of Graduate Studies also provides support for students to attend major professional meetings at which they present an original paper based on their research.
