SPECIALIZED TRAVEL (ST) COMMITTEE

[ Return to Standing Committees listing ]

The Specialized Travel (ST) fund, organized by the GPSA Specialized Travel Committee, was created in 1998 to help graduate and professional students with travel expenses not covered under the SRAC grants. This includes travel to interviews, clinicals, and anything that is not classified as a conference.

The deadlines for ST grants are the fifth Friday of Fall and Spring Semesters and the first Friday of Summer Term. Packets must be received in the GPSA office by 12:00 noon. Students may receive $500 per academic year through the Specialized Travel fund. Academic years begin with Summer (June 1 to August 14), then Fall (August 15 to December 31) and end Spring (January 1 to May 31).

Below you will find the forms needed to complete an ST application, as well as more detailed information in the ST Rules and Guidelines. Before submitting your application, please carefully review all instructions to avoid incomplete or incorrect packets. Applications that do not meet the guidelines are “Fatal Errors” and will not be reviewed by the committee.

Announcements of ST awards will be sent via email within six weeks of the application deadline. All applicants are invited to review the comments of the ST committee regarding their application by inquiring at the GPSA office (1021 SUB)

The ST Committee holds workshops each semester to help applicants prepare quality applications. Applicants are encouraged to bring proposals-in-progress to these sessions for review. Contact the GPSA office for workshop times and locations (277-3803).

ST is always looking for readers to review applications. If you are a graduate or professional student interested in a hands-on experience in evaluating research and travel grants, contact the ST chair to find out how to join the committee.
