UGGS sponsors two types of student grants:

Individual Travel Grants and Student Group 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

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. Please note that students from departments with high participation at UGGS assembly meetings (attended 75% or more of the meetings in the previous semester) will receive 5 points of their application grade based on such attendance.
