Graduate Travel Grant

VCUarts awards Graduate Student Travel Grants to support original scholarship. The mission of the program is to help fund travel that is not in conjunction with any credit bearing coursework or faculty led activities affiliated with the University, including candidacy, thesis, or dissertation research.

Priority is given to invited/adjudicated presentations or performances and juried exhibitions occurring at professional conferences and/or in professional venues. Funds are also awarded to support professional conference attendance.

Last year VCUarts awarded $30,000.00 to students traveling throughout the United States and abroad. Recent research destinations include: Hong Kong, New Zealand, Hungary, Netherlands, Qatar, Canada, Mexico, Nepal, Greece, Germany and France.

Rolling deadline: applications accepted year-round.
