Money for SDSU Grad Student Travel

The Graduate Student Travel Fund (GSTF) supports travel associated with scholarly research and creative activities. The GSTF is now accepting applications for funding.

The Graduate Student Travel Fund is available to all degree-seeking SDSU graduate students with an accumulated grade point average of at least 3.0. The maximum award is $1,000 and must be used within 12 months of the allocation. Approximately $20,000 will be awarded annually.

The GSTF applications are evaluated, on an ongoing basis by a sub-committee of the Student Research Committee. The committee includes representation from Associated Students, Graduate Student Association, the Graduate Council and the Division of Research Affairs.

The primary criteria used in evaluating applications for funding are as follows:

•Relevance or merit of professional activity to support student’s research/scholarship in designated major field of study
•Appropriateness of scope and budget
•Contribution to completion of a thesis or dissertation
•Record of prior GSTF award—fewer is preferable

To apply, students must complete and sign the GSTF application and e-mail the document to the Student Research Committee via e-mail to Applications must be received at least one month in advance of proposed travel.
