Travel Award of the Graduate Student Senate

Program Description and Requirements

The Graduate Student Senate (GSS,) in conjunction with UT Arlington Graduate Studies, offers competitive Travel Awards (TAGSS) to Senate members who go above and beyond in their service to the GSS and its supporting organizations. These awards help defray the costs incurred by Senate members who are offered opportunities to conduct and present research at national and international institutions and conferences. Funded by generous, annual commitments from the Dean of the Graduate School, this award serves as a token of appreciation for contributions of the GSS to the University of Texas at Arlington (UTA.)

The GSS grants awards up to $1,250 for international research opportunities and $750 for national research opportunities. The GSS grants awards of up to $750 for international conference oral and poster presentations and $500 for national oral and poster conference presentations. Students may receive one travel award per academic year. The award given may be less than the maximum amount stated above depending on the proposed budget. All applications must be approved by the GSS Executive Board and UT Arlington Graduate Studies.

These are competitive awards and students should submit professional, complete applications.
