Graduate Student Travel Awards


International Conference Student Support Awards

The Office of President Wallace Loh and the Graduate School established the International Conference Student Support Award (ICSSA).

The International Conference Student Support Award will cover a graduate student’s conference registration fee up to $500. To be eligible, a graduate student must be presenting a paper, poster, or other research or creative material at a major, international scholarly, scientific, or professional conference that is held outside of the US. The graduate student must be enrolled at the University of Maryland at the time of travel to the international conference.

Graduate students are eligible to receive the ICSSA twice, once before candidacy (which includes both doctoral and MA students) and a second time after the achievement of candidacy (doctoral students only). ICSSA funds will be distributed on a first come, first serve basis.
