Graduate Student Travel Scholarships

Each year, the Department of Civil, Environmental and Geodetic Engineering provides travel scholarships to support graduate students presenting their research at professional conferences in their area of specialty. These funds come through departmental accounts, including the Bedford Scholarship Fund.

For the 2020 - 2021 academic year, it is expected there will be twelve $500 awards distributed evenly across the four funding periods outlined below (three awards each period).

Students who have received an award during the 2019-2020 Funding Period 4 (travel between 4.1.20 - 6.1.20) and whose travels plans have been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic, will be able to defer the awarded funds to a future conference or rescheduled conference.

Due to university travel restrictions for the foreseeable future, the current request for applications for travel support is being canceled. We will continue to monitor university travel restrictions and hope to continue with the next funding period as soon as possible.


ELIGIBILITY REQUIREMENTS

  • The nominee must be a current graduate student, in good standing, in a Civil, Environmental, and Geodetic Engineering graduate degree program at the time of the conference.
  • The nominee must be attending the conference to present their own work.
  • The advisor/faculty sponsor is expected to cover any remaining registration and travel expenses from their own research or departmental accounts.
