PAGs Travel Grants Quick Facts:
Meetings/conferences are an important part of graduate and professional students’ early career. It provides a great opportunity to get connected with the external world, to share ideas and broaden our knowledge. Connecting with old friends, learning about professional issues and resources, and making new professional connections are building blocks of the early career of graduate and professional students. ECGPS Travel Grant is a small way to help in career development by providing travel funding assistance to graduate and professional students who will present their work at conferences and professional or academic gatherings. The committee will fund students up to $300 and up to two applications to deserving applications at multiple deadlines throughout each fiscal year. Students can only receive one PAGs award per conference.
