Eligible students include PhD students funded by Provost’s, Annenberg, Taiwan and Rose Hills Foundation Fellowships who have passed departmental screening or completed 24 units in their USC PhD program. Students funded by the Graduate School’s various Endowed and Dissertation Completion Fellowships are also eligible to apply.
Fellows may receive one travel grant from the Graduate School during their time at USC. The award process is competitive. The grant may be used to cover travel six months prior to, or six months after the date of application. For example, a fellow submitting in February may use the funds for travel between August 2012 and July 2013.
Fellows will complete an on-line application and will be asked to collect signatures from their faculty advisor, department chair, and dean or dean’s designate, affirming that they are making good progress toward the PhD and that the specific travel request will serve their academic goals. The application and form for the signatures will be available at https://grad.usc.edu/TravelAward starting on Monday January 28, 2013. The deadline for fellows to complete the spring application is Friday, February 1, 2013 at 12 noon.
