Step 1: Obtain and complete the application for the University of Florida Graduate Student Council’s grant application. You do not have to be a doctoral candidate* to apply for this funding source. This application requires the signature of your major adviser. Please note that deadlines to apply are quite early: roughly 2-3 months before your scheduled travel. You can receive a printed confirmation of your Graduate Student Council application by sending an e-mail request to: firstname.lastname@example.org. Be sure to include your name, department (School of Teaching & Learning), and month of travel. Send us the confirmation from GSC that they received your application.
Step 2: If you are a doctoral candidate*, you are also eligible to apply for the Office of Research and Graduate Programs’ Graduate Student Travel Funds application. (Scroll down to Graduate Student Travel Funds). This application requires signatures from your dissertation supervisor, the department chair (see the STL Graduate Coordinator for this signature), and a representative from the College of Education Dean’s Office.
Step 3: Submit a copy of the completed application(s) and supporting materials from Steps 1 or 2 to Dr. Tom McMorrow (email@example.com) in 2403 Norman Hall. If you are presenting at the conference, be sure to include a copy of your conference presentation acceptance letter or email. The STL Graduate Coordinator will forward your materials to the STL Graduate Studies Committee, which will allocate funding awards.
Step 4: Submit the original completed application to the UF Graduate Student Council or the UF Office of Research to apply for additional funding.
*Doctoral candidates are doctoral students who have passed their doctoral qualifying exams.
