The Department of Women's, Gender and Sexuality Studies is pleased to announce travel awards for current women's, gender and sexuality studies undergraduate majors.
You may apply for up to $300. Students who have not received travel funds will be given priority.
These awards are intended to foster undergraduate student professional development and research support through participation in conferences, colloquia, and workshops hosted outside of The Ohio State University as well as supporting research for a thesis. Students presenting at a conference or symposium will be given priority. Applications will require a statement on how these proposed travel plans (research or conference) will specifically benefit the student’s academic and professional development, and for those presenting at a conference, proof of acceptance or submission materials if the acceptance is pending.
Due to a limited number of funds and the competitive nature of these grants, students are encouraged to seek funding from outside of the department, including sources such as the Arts and Sciences Small Grants or conference assistance.
Step 3. Following the conference/travel: All awarded students will be required to submit a brief (1-page) summary including proof of attendance so that we may use this information to recognize donors.
