# Travel Support

The Department of Political Science supports graduate students presenting a paper/poster at a conference/symposium, as a round table presenter, or as a panel discussant/participant at professional conferences such as APSA, MPSA, ISA, etc.

STUDENTS MUST APPLY BEFORE TRAVELING TO PRESENT. Note: You may forfeit the travel award if you don't apply prior to traveling.

Students can be reimbursed for airfare, membership dues, conference registration, and prepaid lodging (i.e. airbnb or Expedia) before traveling. Lodging, meal per diem, and local transportation are reimbursable after travel.

Students in Years 1-6 are eligible for these travel funds.

• $400 for each domestic conference - up to two per year •$600 for conferences in Canada or Hawaii
• $1000 for international conferences •$600 for students presenting at one domestic conference for the year
Students are allowed an annual maximum equivalent to 2 domestic conferences ($800) or 1 international conference ($1000). There are many permutations of this however, the maximum overall will be \$1000 annually. All travel funds awarded by the department must be reimbursed in the same fiscal year in which they were requested and approved. Travel funds do not carry over into the next fiscal year. The University's fiscal year is July 1st - June 30th.
