Dean's Student Travel Grant Program

Those of you interested in participating in conferences or professional meetings this year should be aware of the Dean's Student Travel Grant Program. The Dean of the Graduate School of Arts and Science (GSAS) provides funds to graduate students in the humanities, social sciences and sciences for travel to professional meetings and conferences to present invited papers or posters. The Dean's Student Travel Grant Program provides a total of 225 awards each year, in the amount of $500 each, to help students defray the cost of presenting their scholarly work. The grant may be used for travel, lodging, and related expenses.

The program is fully described on the GSAS web site at http://gsas.nyu.edu/page/grad.travelgrant. Awards are made through a two-tier lottery process during three award periods. Applications for Period 1 are being accepted from this Wednesday, October 8, through October 23.
