RGS Graduate Student Travel Award

The RGS Graduate Student Travel Award promotes student involvement in their disciplines by partially funding travel costs associated with professional presentations at regional, national, and international conferences. Developing presentation skills is critical to the success of graduate students, and conference presentations represent the best opportunity for developing those skills. Professional presentations build professional skills--the nuts and bolts of communicating results to professional audiences--and provide outstanding career-building opportunities.
