Travel Funds - Policies and Procedures

Linguistics Department Policy on Graduate Student Travel Support

General principle:

For each graduate student enrolled in the doctoral program, and without access to their own grant funding, the department will contribute funds towards the costs of one trip per pre-dissertation project, plus up to 2 trips for the dissertation project.

Some details and extra stipulations:

NB: As stated in the Graduate Student Handbook, students must consult with their advisors before submitting an abstract to a conference. This helps to ensure the quality of the work, to maximize its chance of acceptance, and to establish proper authorship. Failure to consult with advisors will lead to denial of departmental funding in support of the conference.

Flow of paperwork in THE Department:

Work with your advisor to develop a budget for the project. Once this is prepared, fill out and submit the Travel Support Application form. The Department Office will contact you when your funding is approved or if any additional information is required.
