Conference Travel Awards

The following restrictions are in place to allow the GSGA to provide funding to all UC graduate students:

  • A student can receive a maximum of $500 in conference related travel awards from the GSGA per fiscal year (July 1st to June 30th).
  • UC graduate students are eligible for a maximum of $500 per fiscal year (July 1st to June 30th) from the GSGA.


Presenter Award

Starting November 1st, 2017, the GSGA has increased the $400 maximum to $500 to every graduate student who attends a conference as a presenter.

Non-Presenter Award

Starting November 1st, 2017, the GSGA has increased the $100 maximum to $200 to every graduate student who attends a conference as a non-presenter.

This conference travel award increase is only for graduate students attending a conference starting November 1st, 2017. If you have already used $400 (or less, depending on the award you applied for) of your conference travel funding this fiscal year, you are still eligible to use the remaining funds for a different conference this fiscal year.

Please note that you cannot submit your previous conference travel award application for an increased reimbursement. All such applications will be dismissed.

Please contact the GSGA treasurer <> with any questions.


While the process above applies to most of our graduate students, we are transitioning our existing system of travel awards to a more comprehensive and collaborative approach with each college across our different campuses. If you are a student in CEAS or CECH, please follow the same procedure to complete your application but kindly submit your documents only to the business officers from your corresponding college to avoid processing delays.
