All other details are outlined on the SLAT Student Travel Application, including details on the UA Travel Authorization form. Please download and read the SLAT Student Travel Application when applying for SLAT Travel funds.
SLAT students may apply for departmental funding for travel to conferences or other professional development opportunities. Funding preference is given to students who will present their research or participate in job interviews at the event. Maximum funding for conference travel is $275 or 75% of airfare costs, whichever is least. Students must apply to at least one other funding source to be eligible for SLAT travel funding. Some generous awards are often made through GPSC or HE Carter Awards. Check with your GAT hiring department for additional funding sources. Students may apply to SLAT for travel funding once per academic year.
SLAT provides separate funding for research support or travel to multiple events for students on the job market. Please contact GIDP-SLAT@email.arizona.edu for details on additional funding opportunities
Good luck and Happy Travels!
