The Graduate and Professional Student Government (GPSG) 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.  Please Note: The GPSG Travel Grant is different from the Graduate School Student Travel Grant. Applying to GPSG Travel Grant does not affect your eligibility to apply to the the other.

International Students - Please assure that you are permitted to receive a travel grant and make sure that you will not receive extra taxes on the grants (checkout this link)

There are two grant series per academic year, one each semester. Applications for travel grants will open January 14th at 5pm MST and close January 28th at 5pm MST. This grant period covers events from March 1st, 2022 to September 1st, 2022.

COVID Requirements: Currently all university funding must be approved and follow the rules of the Procurement Service Center. Any travel that is not approved and booked properly cannot be funded through a GPSG travel grant at this time.

Please contact our Director of Finance if you have any questions at finance.gpsg@coloroado.edu. (Please be patient as I respond to all these emails)
