GSA International offers travel grants to help support the participation of international scientists and students at GSA Connects 2023 in Denver. Travel grant funds are limited; grants will not cover the full cost to attend the meeting but are intended to help offset the combined cost of registration, housing, and travel. Applicants will be notified about their status (successful or not) by 23 June 2023.

Check with your Division or Section

Many GSA Divisions and Sections offer grants as well as best-paper awards. Be sure to check with yours for GSA Connects-related funding.

Interested in helping students participate in the meeting?

Every year, a large percentage of students apply for travel grants for the meeting but do not receive an award due to limited funds. You can help reduce this number by donating as little as US$10 via your registration application. 100 percent of funds collected go to students!

On To the Future Travel Awards

Application deadline: 31 May 2023

The On To the Future (OTF) program supports students from diverse communities to attend GSA Connects by offering partial travel funding if attending in-person, full meeting registration, one-year membership, mentorship, and special sessions with leadership during the meeting.
