LAS-Philosophy Department Travel Awards
1. Students will be funded for presenting or commenting at meetings substantially related to their studies, if they incur travel, accommodation, and registration expenses of at least $200. Applicants must also apply for GSC and/or Graduate College and/or other sources (such as the conference itself) travel funding if eligible (see the department website). Such awards will be deducted from the trip's budget.
2. The deadline for Fall requests is November 15, and for Spring and Summer, April 1; students should apply to the first possible deadline, before or after a trip. Awards will be made by GAC shortly thereafter. Money for matching funds should be requested from the DGS, and decisions will be made, when needed.
(i) One qualifying trip to an academic meeting per deadline will be supported. The annual student travel budget will be divided between the two cycles, with more money for the second, longer cycle. The available money will be divided in proportion to approved budgets (after other sources of support);; except $250 is the maximum amount of an award.
(ii) Matching funding pledges of $100 will be made as needed for qualifying applications, and count as part of the award if paid.
(iii) In exceptional circumstances the Chair may make special funds available to a student on request;; but in case of more expensive opportunities, students should consider the Provost Award.
