Travel Grants

The GSA Foundation has awarded $4,500 to each of the six GSA sections for student travel grants. In order to qualify for these grants, you must be a student member of the South-Central Section of GSA. The money, when combined with equal funds from the sections, is used to assist both undergraduate and graduate student members of GSA.The South-Central Section usually makes awards of up to $200.

Students: In order to be considered for a travel grant, you must:

  1. be the senior author and presenter of the paper;
  2. a current student member of South Central section of GSA (not a member? join now), attending an institution in the section or presenting research from the area of the section;
  3. be registered for the meeting to which you are applying for a grant;
  4. apply using the online Travel Grant Application Form (available from the "Students" page in the appropriate meeting announcement during the registration period ); and

Grant recipients must pick up their reimbursement checks in person with photo ID at the meeting.

Notification of grant status will be made prior to the cancellation deadline, so if your attendance is dependent on receipt of a travel grant and you do not receive it, you may obtain a full registration refund.
