We acknowledge that applying for a travel grant can be stressful, but we have gathered helpful information to serve as a guide throughout the process.

Please read the information in this section carefully and follow the instructions; this will ensure that the application process operates smoothly. It is best to apply early as the Dean Rusk International Studies office receives numerous applicants each cycle. Your application for travel grants will not be considered until we have received all the necessary documents as requested by the online application.
