Graduate Student Travel Grants

The Bobst Center will reimburse qualified second- through sixth-year Comparative Politics graduate students working on themes related to peace and justice up to $350 of eligible travel-related expenses (transportation, accommodation), consistent with the university's travel policy (http://finance.princeton.edu/policy-library/travel-entertainment/travel-policy/). Bobst travel funding is available for students who have exhausted other funding options (Dean of the Graduate School and Politics Department travel funding).  

Eligibility:

  • Regularly enrolled Ph.D. Comparative Politics students at the time of the conference presentation who have been invited to deliver a paper or poster that represents their own work (job talks, discussant and panel respondent do not qualify).  
     
  • Students are eligible to receive one Bobst travel grant per year (no more than three per career).

Process:

  • Submit and document an application to the Graduate School for conference funding in the current year (Dean's Fund for Scholarly Travel, or, for conferences taking place in June-August, the APGA Summer Travel Grant) . If conference travel funding is available from conference organizers, students must document an application for this funding.
     
  • Qualified students seeking Bobst travel reimbursement should send an email including an abstract of the paper being presented and documentation of appeals to the graduate school and department to BobstCtr@princeton.edu with the subject line Travel Grant at least one week before traveling to the conference for which reimbursement will be requested.
