Mission

The Graduate Student Council (GSC), allocates money annually for Graduate Student Travel Awards to support students’ academic and professional development. The Graduate Student Council acknowledges that students are increasingly incurring more costs for their research, projects, and presentations.

The Travel Awards Program aims to support and encourage academic excellence beyond CGU’s campus and to offer students opportunities to gain professional experience in their field by subsidizing travel costs for as many students as possible. The Material Awards Program aims to support and encourage academic excellence by providing students with reimbursement for material costs related to their academic endeavors.

As we are approaching the end of the Fall semester for the 2022-2023 academic year, the GSC Executive Board is happy to announce great news to all CGU Students who are interested in academic financial support in your projects.

As you might be aware, the Graduate Students Council (GSC) provides grants to CGU students to support some costs of their research projects, conference participation & presentations and materials through the Travel and Material Awards (TMA) Program. The Program aims to support and encourage academic excellence beyond CGU’s campus and to offer students opportunities to gain professional experience in their fields by subsidizing travel costs for as many students as possible. Likewise, the Material Award Program aims at providing students with reimbursement of material costs incurred, which are related to their academic endeavors.
