Student Travel Support

Interested in networking, learning, presenting your research and furthering your career by attending a conference? The College of Education believes that grad students can benefit greatly from the professional experience they gain at conferences. That’s why we offer several support options for graduate student travel. Purdue Student Government also has a travel grant. Read about them below.

Dean’s Graduate Student Travel Support

Partial support, up to $300, is available for College of Education graduate students who will be attending a regional, national, or international conference. College of Education funds are available to students who have authored or co-authored an accepted paper that will be presented at the conference; donor funds are available to any graduate students who wishes to attend a conference. This award is on a first-come, first-served basis, and students can only be awarded one per academic year. Applications are accepted at any time. Funds must be used by May 31.

Department Travel Grants

The Department of Curriculum & Instruction and the Department of Educational Studies offer travel grants to graduate students who will be attending a professional conference to present a paper. Contact your department for application information.

Purdue Graduate Student Government (PGSG) Travel Grants

PGSG Travel Grants assist Purdue University graduate students in attending technical conferences which in turn will help to develop graduate students professionally and augment the overall quality of research at Purdue. Grants are distributed among graduate students on a competitive basis. Competitions are held each fall and spring semester.

Dean’s Doctoral Student Research Support Program

The COE Dean’s Doctoral Student Research Support Program is designed to assist doctoral students, who are enrolled in graduate programs in the College of Education, in defraying the expenses of student-initiated research projects, including dissertation research. Funds may be used to purchase instruments, acquire or duplicate research materials, travel to research sites, or for other legitimate research-related expenses. Please note: funds may not be used for salaries, to purchase food or beverages, to provide incentives for research participants, or to travel to conferences. Awards will be in form of an S&E account of up to $200. Applications may be submitted anytime; awards will be made on a first-come basis. Funds must be expended by May 31st of the fiscal year in which they are awarded.
