Buffalo State graduate students can apply for funding to present academic papers, travel to conferences for particular purposes, or conduct research.
Students must document their participation and request funding through their department chair and academic dean. As funding for the full amount needed for travel may not be available, students should be prepared to fund part of their trip themselves. The Graduate School does not have monies to support student funding requests but encourages students to seek funding assistance through the Graduate Student Association. Information can be found on their website. The GSA requires that requests involving travel must be made at least six weeks prior to the trip.
Students need to submit the items below as a packet to their department chair. The packet then gets forwarded to the academic dean. Students may also apply for additional funding support through the Graduate Student Association.
