Graduate Student Travel Fund

The Graduate Student Travel Fund (GSTF) supports travel associated with scholarly research and creative activities.

The maximum award is $1,000 and must be used within 12 months of the allocation. Approximately $10,000 will be granted during each review cycle (fall and spring).

The GSTF is available to all degree-seeking SDSU graduate students with an accumulated grade point average of at least 3.0. An eligible graduate student may submit one application for each review cycle.

The GSTF applications are evaluated by a subcommittee of the Student Research Committee that includes representation from Associated Students, Graduate Student Association, the Graduate Council and the Division of Research Affairs. The primary criteria used in evaluating applications for funding are as follows:

* Relevance or merit of professional activity to support student’s research/scholarship in designated major field of study
* Appropriateness of scope and budget
* Contribution to completion of a thesis or dissertation
