  • Graduate student learning standards and assessment

Travel Awards

Division of Kinesiology and Health graduate students are encouraged to apply for up to $800 in funding to participate in professional meetings or conferences on a rolling basis. Examples include but are not limited to traveling to a professional meeting or conference to present research, receive an award, or participate in UW-sponsored group activities. This support does not include RMACSM or SHAPE America National Convention, which will be covered by other funding mechanisms.
When additional funding is available, the division may consider offering more than $800 for students who have essential needs. Under this circumstance, priorities will be given to students who will attend international conferences, students who have applied for other travel support, students who will receive an award or give an oral presentation, and students who have been in the graduate program longer.
To apply for this travel award, the student needs to obtain support from the advisor and submit the following documents to the graduate program coordinator and division head for review.
  1. Kinesiology and Health Travel Request & Reimbursement Form
  2. Documentation of Travel Purposes. For students who are presenting research or receiving awards, the notice of accepted abstracts or awards will fulfill this requirement. For students who are only attending the conference, a letter of application is required to describe how the conference will help enhance professional development and research experience.
