International Travel Award

The GSS International Travel Award (ITA) is a competitive award that offers a maximum reimbursement of up to $1,500 of approved student-incurred expenses, as determined by the ITA Committee, for travel outside of the United States, Canada, and Mexico.  The ITA is offered for Fall, Spring, and Summer travel.  Full- and part-time graduate students whose departments are in good standing with GSS are eligible for the ITA.

The purpose of this award is to promote the professional and academic development of Kent State University’s graduate student population, to support diversity by giving students the opportunity to experience foreign cultures, and to extend Kent State University’s recognition on an international level by providing financial assistance for international networking, research, and professional development.
