Professional Development and Travel Award

This award is designed to support the academic experience and professional growth of current UAB Graduate Students. An award of up to $400.00 is available for eligible graduate students who meet the enrollment and eligibility requirements for the “GSG Professional Development and Travel Award”. The award is offered as a supplement (via direct deposit) to cover expenses and cannot exceed $400.00. These awards are not meant to reimburse or pay for required UAB credit-generating activities or for activities that are not primarily professional in purpose.

Awardees planning to use GSG funds for travel must fill out the Travel Pre-approval form, or they will not be reimbursed. Please be aware that any UAB funds cannot cover AirBnB. Please review the UAB travel expenses website (https://www.uab.edu/financialaffairs/traveling) for additional information.

We have two application windows per year. Awardees planning to use GSG funds for travel must complete the Travel Pre-approval form.
