The Graduate School Student Travel Grant has three application cycles per year for travel:
The Graduate School offers partial funding for CU Boulder graduate students traveling outside the state of Colorado to present their own research or work at a conference, meeting, or similar event. These travel grants provide up to $450 to students traveling within the Unites States, up to $600 to students traveling to Canada, or Mexico, and up to $700 to students traveling outside the Unites States, Canada, or Mexico.
Please note this grant is treated like a fellowship and will be reported to the Office of Financial Aid, therefore, please be aware that receiving this grant may affect your student loan package.
This grant functions as a reimbursement. If a travel grant application is approved, funds will be applied directly to the student's university account after the dates of travel have passed and receipts have been submitted. If a student is paying an out of pocket amount equal to or more than the respective travel grant, they will receive a full grant (i.e. $450, $600, and $700, respectively). If a student's out of pocket costs are below those thresholds, they will receive a partial grant to cover those costs. We will only reimburse for costs associated with transportation, lodging and registration costs. Please be aware that students must be enrolled during the term that the travel occurs or the funds will applied to the next term. If the student's bursar account balance is zero, a refund via direct deposit will be issues to the student. If the account balance is not zero, the funds will go toward covering any balance. This grant is contingent on continued funding by the Graduate School.
Here are the required elements on the application:
All students and faculty planning research- and education-related travel should consult and abide by the university’s guidelines and recommendations.
International travel involving students that is CU Boulder-sponsored, CU Boulder-affiliated, related to a CU Boulder activity/program, or accompanied by CU faculty/staff, must be registered with CU Education Abroad prior to departure. See the CU Boulder Policy on Student International Travel and Programs and the High-Risk Locations page for full details, and consult the links to the right for further information as you plan your international travel.
Because your travels are CU Boulder-sponsored in part, you may need to register your trip through the International Travel Registration process. After completing this process you will be enrolled in an international health insurance plan and have access to location-specific health and safety information provided by International SOS.
