students traveling between January 3 and April 30, 2014 the
application deadline is January 8, 2014. For students
traveling between May 1 and August 31, 2014 the application
deadline is April 4, 2014. Late applications will not be

If you are awarded a travel award, the funds will be made
available to you for travel/board/registration after we have
received proof of acceptance to a conference. Two separate
deadlines will make it easier for students traveling in the Fall
and Spring to receive their funding in a timely manner with respect
to their travel dates.
The GSA faculty advisor and the GSA executive officers will
review the applications and select the awardees.
If all the eligibility requirements are satisfied, then the
following criteria will be used to decide whether the student will
receive a travel award:
If meeting the updated deadline means you
will not have evidence of an accepted abstract yet: Submit
your application with evidence of abstract submission and indicate
in the comments section of the application when you expect
acceptance notification. You will be required to submit evidence of
acceptance as soon as it becomes available. If you are selected to
receive an award you will not be given any funds until we have
evidence your abstract was accepted.
It is strongly recommended that you apply as soon as you have
confirmation of abstract acceptance regardless of the deadline
date. Applicants will be informed of award status 7 days following
the deadline for application. No awards will be given retroactively
(i.e. after you have traveled).
Please print and fill out the application form and turn it in
with your travel award application.
We strongly encourage applicants to include an abstract even if
the final research results are not available. If you do not have
your abstract ready, please submit your completed application with
credible supplementary information. For example, including an email
or link to the official conference page indicating there is
reasonably sufficient time to submit an abstract is expected. An
abstract and evidence of its acceptance is required before any
funds are released for your travel.
