Awards | Kent State University


Graduate Student Senate offers awards to assist graduate with travel, both domestically and internationally, and conducting research.

Graduate students are welcome to apply for these awards with the understanding that you may only receive one award, per category, per academic year.  For example, you may apply and be awarded one Domestic Travel Award, one International Travel Award, and one Research Award for the same academic year*.  However, it is important to note that students may only be reimbursed once per trip, meaning although your research may fit under two categories you may only use one award per trip.

*Academic year is defined as Fall-Spring-Summer.
