This message is a bit ambiguous in the domestic travel section. I think it's safe to assume that the $500 for oral presentations would be for sole/first authors as well.

Good morning,

 

We are implementing new funding and procedure guidelines for the Graduate Student Travel Fund/International Travel Grant. The new updates will be effective July 16 (September 15 application session). Please disseminate this information to all graduate faculty and students. 

 

*****************************************************************

Students should wait until the update to begin submitting applications for the ITG.

 

2. Graduate Student Travel Fund (GSTF)Available for students who are NOT first authors traveling domestically or internationally.
