Grad Policies: Travel Support

Many students receive travel support to present the results of their research at conferences.

  1. It is important to apply to the conference directly for financial support. Student travel funds are often available through the committee in charge of the conference you will attend. Please note that you should apply directly for this support in a timely manner, as it may be allocated on a "first come, first served" basis.

  2. Research advisors often sponsor student travel, through their grant money, for students to report on research performed under their supervision. Contact your advisor to ask for support.

  3. The Graduate Division offers conference travel grants. The grant amount awarded will depend on the location of the conference. Application for a Conference Travel Grant.

  4. The UC Berkeley Graduate Assembly provides travel awards to students presenting outside the Bay Area. Travel award instructions and application (pdf).
