CAS Graduate Student Travel Grants are internal awards intended to promote high-quality research, scholarship, and creative activity by graduate students of the College of Arts and Sciences at Illinois State University. This grant is intended to supplement travel funds provided by departments/schools or other organizations to help defray the costs of travel.
The program is made possible through the reallocation of temporary funds on an annual basis and will be renewed in subsequent years pending availability of funds.
The Office of the Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences will make these awards. Applications from all students who have either a first or second major in the College of Arts and Sciences will be considered. Each proposal must include the endorsement of the student’s Chair/Director on the cover page of the proposal.
Two submission and review cycles will occur each academic year, with deadlines on the first Friday in December and the first Friday in June. A student may be funded once per academic year. E-mail proposals to email@example.com.
Individuals eligible for an award must be graduate students in the College of Arts and Sciences at Illinois State University at the time of the conference or meeting. Students must be presenting, not just attending.
Project Description: The description should be written in a clear and straightforward style and summarize the project/presentation. The abstract or summary should not exceed 350 words. Please also provide a summary of expenses for the travel, including airfare, lodging, and any other expenses associated with the trip.
