If you are planning to attend a conference and your advisor doesn’t have funds to send you (or even if they do), consider applying for the GSA Conferences and Travel Award! For more information, visit their site or read the information taken from their site below:
The GSA Conferences and Travel Awards consist of the GSA Award for Conferences and GSA Travel Assistance Award. These are highly competitive, merit-based awards intended to cover the costs of attending a conference for NC State graduate students. Students who wish to apply must submit a complete application using the submission form. The deadline for the Fall and Spring semesters is September 15 and February 15, respectively by 11:59 pm. Although students may apply in advance for funding, the GSA Conferences and Travel Awards operates on a reimbursement basis, meaning awardees are reimbursed for costs after travel takes place.
