Graduate School Student Travel Grant
The Graduate School offers partial funding for graduate students to present research findings at meetings or conferences outside Colorado. The Graduate School provides a travel grant of $300 for domestic conferences and $500 for international conferences. Funds will be applied directly to the student's tuition account. If the account balance is zero, a refund via direct deposit will be disbursed by the Bursar's Office. The grant is treated like a fellowship and reported to the Office of Financial Aid; therefore, please be aware it may affect your student loan package. The grant is contingent on account funding by the Graduate School. Eligibility Requirements: o The applicant must be a full-time graduate applicant in good standing, and the travel must occur while the applicant is a current student. o The applicant must be traveling to a meeting or conference to present his/her own work or work on which he/she is the primary author. o The applicant may receive funds from the Graduate School for travel only once per fiscal year (July 1 through June 30). o An applicant receiving significant funding (over $500 for domestic travel and $1,000 for international) from an outside source (fellowship, stipend, scholarship, grant, departmental travel grant) is not eligible. o The applicant must be enrolled during the term that the travel occurs (excluding summer). If the travel occurs during the summer (and the applicant is not enrolled), the grant will be applied to the fall bill.

- Harriett G. Jenkins Pre-doctoral Fellowship Project
Harriett G. Jenkins Pre-doctoral Fellowship Project
The NASA Harriett G. Jenkins Pre-doctoral Fellowship Project (JPFP) was developed in 2000 with a mission to increase the number of underrepresented persons with master's and doctoral degrees in the NASA pipeline, and ultimately in the science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) workforce.
Each year the project supports up to 20 fellows. For ten consecutive years, JPFP has employed a holistic approach to graduate student preparation by successfully addressing the need for supporting, mentoring, coaching and nurturing students during their graduate school experience.
This holistic approach, coupled with professional development training, undoubtedly makes the JPFP one of the most unique and competitive graduate fellowship programs available.
