The Spring Grant Series will open at the start of the spring semester (January 13th). All applications will be due Wednesday, February 5th at 5 pm.
UGGS sponsors two types of student grants: Individual Travel Grants and Student Group/Outreach Grants. There are two grant series per academic year, one each semester:
- Fall Travel Grants cover travel taking place between mid-August and mid-February
- Spring Travel Grants cover travel taking place mid-February and mid-August
- Fall Group/Outeach grants covers events taking place October-February
- Spring Group/Outreach grants cover events taking place March-September
Individual Travel Grants
The United Government of Graduate Students (UGGS) awards funding (up to $300) to individual graduate students each academic semester to support travel to academic conferences, meetings, or other events related to the student's studies. Students are eligible to receive travel aid only once in their tenure as a CU-Boulder graduate student. This allows more students a chance to get funding. Please review the Policy and example essays below.

Student Group Grants
The United Government of Graduate Student (UGGS) facilitates the efforts and initiatives of CU-Boulder graduate students working toward the betterment of the university environment and/or the broader communities in which they live and work through financial support for these student groups each academic semester. As such, UGGS offers a limited number of grants (up to $750) to CU-Boulder student groups that advance and enrich the graduate student experience at CU (Event Grant) or engage the greater community (Outreach Grant). Please review the Policy below.
Last Year's Winners
These charts summarize the proportion of individual travel grant applications we receive and awarded to each college per academic year. Data are presented for the entire academic year rather than for each round of grants because conferences and workshops are held at different times throughout the year for different disciplines.
