Travel Funding

Students making normal progress who would like funding for mathematical travel (attending a conference, for example) can draw on several resources:

Grants

If the student has access to grant money that provides travel support, this should be used first.

Adviser

The student's adviser might have grant money available for grad student travel: ask your adviser!

Graduate and Professional Student Senate

The UW GPSS (Graduate and Professional Student Senate) has some travel funds available if you are presenting a talk or a poster: up to $300 for domestic airfare, $500 for international. Note the deadlines on their page. You should apply directly to them.

UW Graduate School

The UW Graduate School has some funding available if you are presenting a talk or a poster: up to $300 for domestic airfare, $500 for international. Note the deadlines on their page. Also, these funds can only be used for transportation: not lodging, conference fees, etc. To apply, contact the Mathematics GPC with the following information: where you're going, the title of your presentation, and how much money you're requesting.

Department of Mathematics

The Department of Mathematics also has some funding available. To apply, contact the Mathematics GPC with the following information: where you're going, whether you're giving a presentation (funds are available whether you are or not), and how much money you're requesting. Your advisor should also write a brief letter of support to the GPC. Currently, we can provide funding for transportation, lodging, and registration fees, but not food.
