The University of Washington Graduate School Fund for Excellence and Innovation has funds available to support graduate student travel "to assist graduate students with travel fares to major national or international conferences so they may present papers or posters, or to serve as invited speakers." Funds may be used only for airfare or other modes of transportation. Maximum award amounts are $300 for domestic travel and $500 for international travel. Graduate students associated with the CSNE are encouraged to apply for these awards.
