Graduate Professional Development Travel Award

The Office of Professional Development provides graduate students with free in-person, virtual, and hybrid workshops. The workshops are intended to foster growth in career preparation, mentorship, research & ethics, communication, wellness, and much more.

To encourage engagement, a $250 travel award will be given to the West Lafayette residential grad student(s) attending the most graduate school professional development workshops per semester. The Graduate Professional Development travel award must be used for academic or professional development-related travel. Graduate student recipients may use the award for all approved travel expenses such as airfare, mileage, hotel, per-diem, and registration. Additionally, recipients must use it within one year and must be an active graduate student in good standing at the time of travel.

There is no application process for this award. Winners will be notified by a representative from the Graduate School’s Office of Professional Development at the end of each semester.
