Travel grants help graduate students conduct research across the globe

The Graduate School awarded over 100 Research Travel Grants totaling $204,196 in 2021-22, which provide financial support for research degree students to conduct thesis or dissertation research away from campus. With a special round of funding in addition to standard fall and spring rounds, this was the largest group of Research Travel Grants awarded since the pandemic began interrupting travel.
