Graduate Skills Seminar: Travel Funding

Presenters: Current Officers and Guests
Friday, September 28 at 3 PM in ETC 4.150

Attending a conference is a great way to get your new research out to the community, see cutting edge research from around the world, and make professional connections that can boost your career prospects. However, airfare and hotels aren’t free, so this week we will be discussing various grant opportunities for travel funding. We will cover a number of funding opportunities available to graduate students in acoustics, including grants from the Acoustical Society of America and UT Austin.

Grad Skillz Seminar: External Funding and Fellowships

Presenters: Current Officers and Guests
Friday, September 21 at 3 PM in ETC 4.150
External funding opportunities include government and endowed fellowships that can pay your tuition and stipend so that your adviser doesn’t have to! Having your own money is a great way to take control of your graduate career and give you the freedom to pursue the research that interests you most.

We will discuss a number of funding opportunities available to graduate students in acoustics. Focus will be on the NDSEG, SMART, NSF, and Hertz Fellowships.

The slides from the meeting are available here.
