History Alumni Graduate Travel Grant

Generous donations from History alumni allow us provide travel funding to graduate students who are presenting papers at conferences. The amount of funding available each year varies. Graduate students may request up to $1,000 for domestic travel or $1,500 for international travel annually and funding may be used for more than one conference provided the expenses claimed do not exceed these limits. Reimbursable expenses include conference registration, air or train travel, mileage, and food and lodging. Please notify Mary Lashway (gradprogram@history.umass.edu) after you’ve submitted your application.

Up to $1,000 for domestic, $1,500 for international travel.
