We are pleased to be able to offer eligible graduate students funding to help defray the expense of presenting their research at one conference during the 2018-2019 period July 1, 2018 to June 30, 2019. 

In order to be in compliance with the UCLA Travel Accounting office regulations for reimbursement and to provide earlier payment to our students, there will be only one review period covering both completed travel and travel planned for later in the year. If you are planning to present at a conference later this year and are still unsure of all the details, please make sure to submit a Conference Travel Grant Application Part A to Emilia Ninova by the deadline.



Conference Travel Grants help defray costs for our graduate students presenting posters or papers on their own research. Applicants must be the sole author of the research to be presented, or, in the case of multiple authors, the student must be the presenting author. In the case of Psychonomics and the Society for Multivariate Experimental Psychology; exceptions will be considered, since only faculty members are permitted to present at these meetings. Eligible expenses are limited to transportation costs (airfare, train tickets or mileage) and/or registration fees for one conference. Lodging, food costs, membership fees, pre-registration fees, submission fees, taxis, shuttles and/or poster printing costs will NOT be reimbursed. Expenses will be reimbursed after travel is completed and the required documentation is presented. Students must be registered and enrolled both the quarter that they complete the travel and the quarter that they will be reimbursed. If you attend a conference during the summer months, you must be registered and enrolled in the previous spring and following fall quarters to be eligible. You are only eligible for an award if you have already used all of your $1,000 Graduate Division travel allowance. You are also only eligible for an award if you have presented at the conference. Just attending a conference does not make you eligible for reimbursement.
