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 2018-19 academic year, it is expected there will be twelve $500 awards distributed evenly across the four funding periods outlined below (three awards each period).


  • 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
