Ray Travel Award for Scholarship and Service, Council of Graduate Students
The Council of Graduate Students' Edward J. Ray Travel Award encourages and enables graduate students across the university to participate in professional conferences, both in their respective fields and in the broader academic community, by reimbursing or partially reimbursing the expenses incurred by graduate students during travel to conferences and meetings to present original research.
Unlike other programs that award travel funds, Ray Award evaluators give substantial weight to the applicant's service to his/her department, the university, and the surrounding community when making award decisions. Evaluators also take into account the academic standing of the applicant, the applicant's professional goals, the nature of the conference being attended, and the applicant's ability to convey the focus of their research to a general audience.
