Graduate students are eligible to receive the Graduate Student Travel and Research Dissemination Fund once per degree program. The Travel and Research Dissemination Fund provides funding support of $500 per graduate student.
Travelling outside of Canada: When students are planning travel outside of Canada for university purposes, they have obligations under UBC’s Student Safety Abroad Policy (SC12). Students are required to have adequate travel medical insurance, to register their travel on UBC’s Safety Abroad Registry, and to use the resources provided by UBC to support safe travel planning and risk management. In locations where the Government of Canada has official travel advisories in place, students are required to request High-Risk Authorization before travelling. For more information, see: https://safetyabroad.ubc.ca or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Travel and Research Dissemination Fund assists graduate students in sharing the results of their research with professional audiences, to contribute to students' professional development, and to provide them with career advancement opportunities.
Please be sure to learn about open access publishing before submitting to journals/publishers, and be particularly aware of the risks associated with “predatory publishers”.
Students must submit the following to the Faculty of Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies:
Note: The complete application should be submitted by email to email@example.com only after travel or open access publishing has taken place. Applications for future travel will not be accepted.
Upon receipt of the application form and proof of conference presentation or proof of open access publishing charge, applicant will receive an award offer of $500 from the Graduate Student Travel and Research Dissemination Fund. Reminder: Graduate students are eligible to receive the Fund once per degree program.
Funds will be assigned to the student as an award via the Student Service Centre. Students who have signed up for direct deposit will receive the funds directly in their personal bank account. Otherwise, a cheque will be issued that the student will pick up from Brock Hall.
In some cases, the applicant may wish for their UBC faculty supervisor to be paid the award funds, rather than themself (ex. if their faculty supervisor paid all of their travel expenses to the conference). Upon receipt of the application form and proof of conference presentation or proof of open access publishing charge, funds will be transferred directly from the Fund into the faculty supervisor's research account in Workday.
Applications will be accepted only after travel is completed. Otherwise, there is no deadline for submission - students may submit Graduate Student Travel Fund applications at any time.
Complete Graduate Student Travel Fund applications are processed approximately every two weeks by Awards staff. Processing of complete applications from August to November may take a bit longer, as this is the peak period for Graduate Awards staff.
