The Graduate Student Senate (GSS) and the Graduate School oversee two student support programs. The GSS Travel Awards provide support to students who are presenting UT research at in-person professional conferences. The GSS Academic Support Awards help reimburse students who have expenses associated with their education. Funding for these programs is limited, so it is possible that all funds could be disbursed before all needs are met. In order to support as many students as possible, students may only apply for one award per academic year.
