AGS Emergency Travel Grants

AGS understands that in a crisis like we are facing now, you don’t want to also worry about how you are going to pay to move somewhere new for the remainder of the year. In lieu of the traditional travel grants, we are converting these grants into Emergency Travel Grants. 

AGS has created a Travel Grant program to award graduate students small grants of up to $400 or $600 to help graduate students to offset the costs accrued while preparing for the changes brought about by Covid-19. If you have expenditures related to Covid-19 related travel, whether that be moving home, temporarily relocating, visiting family/friends you were concerned about, you are eligible to apply for Emergency Travel Grant funding. Awards are up to $400 for domestic travel and $600 for international travel. Receipts must be presented and must be dated no earlier than February 15.
