Travel Fund Program

The Travel Fund Program (TFP) is the GSA’s most popular program, and is sponsored by the Graduate School and the Virginia Tech Office of the Provost. TFP provides partial grants to cover graduate student conference travel (this includes transportation, registration fees, lodging, and meals). All graduate students — traveling within the U.S. or internationally — are eligible to apply. The program also can be used to support international travel.

The fall TFP cycle generally covers travel between July 1st and December 31st, and the spring cycle covers trips between January 1st and June 30th. 

The application for the Fall 2017 funding cycle will open on Wednesday, November 1st, at 12:00am. It will close on Wednesday, November 8th at 11:59pm.
