Travel Awards

The Graduate School is eager to support students and their original research through two kinds of travel support to students who are formally registered for credit hours: Travel to Professional Meetings and Travel to Support Doctoral Research. 

**ALL applications must be submitted at least four weeks prior to travel to be considered.** 

Travel to Professional Meetings

This program is designed to support presentation of findings of graduate-student research, artistic performance, etc. The program is not intended to support recruitment activities, attendance at meetings without presentation of scholarship, costs of publication, or costs of conducting research. Two awards of up to $400 each are available each year (June 1-May 31 of the following calendar year). Any one award may not exceed $400. However, students may request less than $400, thereby possibly allowing support for more than two meetings in a year.

Travel to Support Doctoral Research

This award is designed to support travel for doctoral research directly related to the completion of a candidate's dissertation.  The student's dissertation proposal must be formally approved by the program at the time of application. The Graduate School will match funds with the student's department, up to $400. A doctoral student is eligible for one such award during her/his doctoral studies at Baylor University.
