Special Contingency Award | Graduate Studies | Kent State University

Special Contingency Award

We in the Graduate Student Senate are committed to funding the scholarly travels of the students who compose our constituencies. However, the deadlines for our awards are sometimes impractical or ill-suited for the circumstances of particular students. Therefore, we offer the Special Contingency Award to fund such travel opportunities.
