The Graduate Student Council (GSC), in collaboration with Claremont Graduate University (CGU), allocates money annually for Graduate Student Travel Awards to support students’ academic and professional development. The Graduate Student Council acknowledged that students are increasingly incurring more costs for their research, projects and presentations.
The Travel Awards Program aims to support and encourage academic excellence beyond CGU's campus and to offer students opportunities to gain professional experience in their field by subsidizing travel costs for as many students as possible. The Material Awards Program aims to support and encourage academic excellence by providing students with reimbursement for material costs related to their academic endeavors.
There are two application periods for CGU Travel Awards.
Please Click Here for the current version of the Travel and Material Award Guidelines which includes information regarding explaining the types, award values, scoring, and more.
For any additional information or questions please feel free to email the Treasurer at Treasurer.GSC@cgu.edu.
Student Reviewers Needed
Each essay is read independently by three CGU students. Reviewers will not have access to or review essays from their department, and if applying for a travel and/or material award, essays in their same award category. To volunteer as a reviewer or to receive more information, email GSC by a later date April 1, 2016.
