One clarification about the travel funds. The Graduate Committee will give preference to applications from students who have advanced to candidacy; but you do not have to be advanced to candidacy to apply.
As usual, the department is able to fund a small number of travel grants of up to $2,000 each for students traveling for research. Application details below. If you have any questions, please just let me know.
