Travel Expenses

Travel Expense Reimbursement

Graduate student travel funds are available to full time registered Master’s students and full-time or part time registered Doctoral students who travel in connection with their graduate program. The total amount of travel funds available is a combination of funds available from the Faculty of Graduate Studies, Graduate Students’ Association and the student’s program/supervisor. Financial support from other sources, other than Faculty of Graduate Studies, must be a minimum of $100.  The student must be presenting at a conference and the program/supervisor must confirm the attendance at the conference and that attending is of direct benefit to the student’s program and research. The Faculty of Graduate Studies will normally pay expenses up to a maximum of $300 providing appropriate documentation and receipts are submitted and other sources of funding are available.

President's Enhancement Fund

After presenting at a conference, part-time and full-time students may be eligible to apply to the President’s Enhancement Fund to obtain some additional support. Funding is available to a student once per fiscal year and only after the student receives approved funding from their Faculty and/or the Faculty of Graduate Studies. Students must complete an application form; attach a proposed budget with original receipts and any endorsements or recommendations from their Faculty/Professor that supports their request. Graduate students must also submit a travel expense claims form as part of the application package.

This information should be submitted to the Office of Vice-Provost & Associate Vice President, Student Services in Schmon Tower Room:401 for funding consideration after they have obtained the required sources of approval (e.g.: Faculty of Graduate Studies, Department).
