The Dean of Arts and Humanities Travel Fund

The Dean of Arts and Humanities has established a travel fund for the purpose of supporting graduate student research. 


Any graduate student in good standing within the School of Arts and Humanities is encouraged to apply for travel support. Ph.D. students may receive no more than one grant per travel grant year and no more than two during their academic career at UC San Diego. Master’s students may receive no more than one grant during their time at UC San Diego pursuing that degree; should they continue in a School of Arts and Humanities Ph.D. program, the earlier grant will count as one of the awards allotted for their career.

Award Terms:

  • Awards may be given for travel to professional meetings and conferences to present invited papers, posters and other scholarly work. The grant may be used for travel, lodging, registration fees, and related expenses in accordance with university travel policies.
  • The maximum award amount is $300 per awardee per year.
  • Applications should be submitted by filling out the application.
  • Department approval for the application is required for each submission.
  • Applications are due by Nov. 30, 2022 and April 30, 2023.
  • Decisions regarding above due dates will be made by Dec. 31, 2022 and May 15, 2023, respectively.
  • Travel funds will be transferred to the student’s home department.  The student’s home department is responsible for setting up travel events and processing reimbursements. If the proposed travel does not happen, the department must send the funds back to the Dean's Office.
