You are encouraged to apply to the GSA for funds to aid you in your research expenses. To ensure that you meet all deadlines and receive the support in a timely manner, you should talk with your GSA representative as soon as you begin planning your travel. Your representative can advise you on how to apply for support and what other avenues are available. Before applying to the GSA, however, it is recommended that you ask the Math Department if they have any funds available. You can also go to the Dean of Graduate Research after applying to the Academic Department and the GSA.

You may apply to the GSA as many times as you wish but there is a $400 per semester limit you may receive from the GSA.  Please note below the amount you may request depending on your purpose.  For more detailed explanations, see the by-laws or ask your department representative to the GSA.

Category III ($50 per student/per semester):  Photocopying
