Student Research Travel Grants | College of Education and Social Services | The University of Vermont(title)

The CESS Research Travel Grants Program encourages and supports doctoral student travel to present research at academic conferences or professional meetings. Grants are awarded to students presenting their research outside of UVM.

Guidelines for All Applicants


Students can receive up to $500 in travel and conference reimbursement. Applications may be submitted at any point before the travel for which funding is requested. You will receive notification within one week after the application deadline (see deadlines listed below). 

We will utilize the available funds to support as many meritorious requests as possible.

Applicants must also request funding support through the UVM Graduate College Conference Grant Program.

In addition to the applications forms, applications must include an abstract of the paper/poster, a copy of the meeting announcement (or similar documentation) and a copy of the applicant's curriculum vitae. Additional materials may be attached where deemed appropriate by the applicant. Requests must include all required materials to be considered.

Preference will be given to students who are presenting their first paper/poster, and students who have not received a travel grant previously.
