Travel Allocations
Travel Allocations are available to fund individual graduate and professional students who are traveling to an academic or professional conference that relates to their area of study and will enhance their professional development. Typically the funds have paid for conference registration fees, meals, transportation or hotel costs. Travel allocations are up to $500 for domestic travel and $750 for international travel. A student may only receive one travel grant during their graduate career at UW. If awarded, the funds will be transferred to a budget number provided by the travel coordinator in your department. You will make all travel arrangements and reimbursements through your department travel coordinator.
Who Can Apply For Travel Allocations?

Travel funds are available to any graduate or professional student at the University of Washington Seattle campus.

Application Process

Review GPSS funding policies outlined below as well as the University of Washington travel guidelines.
Download the Travel Allocations Application Form and fill it out.
Have your departmental travel coordinator fill out the travel coordinator section of the application. This will most likely be the administrator in your department.
Have a faculty member familiar with your work submit a letter of recommendation of 400 words or less either in a sealed envelope signed across the seal or emailed directly to the GPSS Treasurer.
Attach a printout of the conference homepage or a conference brochure to your application.
Submit the completed application form along with all supplemental materials to the GPSS office (CONDON 401, Box 352238) by Noon on any of the deadline dates listed above.
Incomplete, late applications or incorrectly filled out applications will not be considered. Meaning missing or incorrect budget number, missing conference information, missing letter of reference, student statement over 400 words, missing budget information or requests over the specified limits. No exceptions! We receive vast more applications than we can fund. It is always a difficult decision for the committee*.
