Just a reminder for anyone who is attending a conference this month – the funding period for the LFS Graduate Student Travel Award is September to August. Please make sure you submit your LFS Graduate Student Travel Award application by August 30, 2022 so that your award falls under the 2021-2022 funding period. If you submit after August 30, your award will be paid out in September and you won’t be able to claim another travel award in 2022-2023.
Please don’t hesitate to let me know if you have any questions.
