Career Development Reimbursement Form

GPSC IS NOW ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS FOR CAREER DEVELOPMENT REIMBURSEMENT FUNDING FOR THE 2018-2019 ACADEMIC YEAR.

Each year, GPSC reserves a significant portion of its budget for Graduate Student Professional Development. Graduate students are eligible for $150 per fiscal year. 

Students may claim $75  in reimbursement for simply attending a conference OR $150 if presenting. If a student claims the $75 reimbursement for attendance, they still have $75 in remaining eligibility for the fiscal year and may claim the remaining $75 for attendance at a separate conference. If a student claims $150 for presenting, they must also include proof of their presentation acceptance (e.g. email, program) and will not be eligible to receive any additional funding toward career development for the remaining fiscal year.
The fiscal year is defined as July 1 to June 30, pending funding availability, and GPSC goes by the date the paperwork was signed by the traveler. GPSC is provided a limited amount of resources toward career development support. GPSC does accept applications prior to attending conferences to encourage students submit their applications early. **Note that required documentation must be included to have your funding request approved.
