GSAC Travel Grant Applications Now Open
Eligible graduate students may apply for individual travel grants (up to $500) to defray the costs associated with presenting their work at academic conferences and workshops. Conference registration fees, transportation (by the most economical means available), and lodging (excluding meals) may all be reimbursed. Travel grants will be awarded twice annually, with preference given to those who show demonstrated need based on an evaluation of the applications by the finance committee.

Getting involved with GSAC
If you would like to become involved with GSAC, please consider becoming a Department Representative. Department Representatives are a department’s voice on GSAC. They serve as voting members of the plenary (steering committee members are nonvoting), in addition to serving on committees where much of the policy and decisions are deliberated and GSAC’s plans are executed. Many GSAS departments do not currently have a representative. See here for a list of vacant positions.
