Cordilleran Section

Travel Grants

Each year the Cordilleran Section allocates funds to help defray travel costs for its students who are traveling to the Cordilleran Section Meeting as well as to the GSA Annual Meeting to present papers. Applicants for student travel subsidies must be:

  1. first author of a paper or poster, and
  2. presenter of that paper or poster, and
  3. GSA Student Members, and
  4. Cordilleran Section members at the time of application.

Applications consist of name, mailing address (valid through July), phone number, e-mail (valid through July), GSA member number, social security number, title and co-authors (if any) of abstract. Please use our secure Travel Grant Application Form (link available only during registration periods from the appropriate meeting Web site) to submit this information.

A student can only receive one travel grant per meeting. You will be notified of your application status before the cancellation deadline and checks can be picked up in person at the meeting.

The GSA Foundation has awarded $4,500 to each of the six GSA sections. The money, when combined with additional funds from the sections, is used to assist both undergraduate and graduate student members of GSA. Thanks, GSAF!
