APPENDIX II: Funding for Student Travel

When resources are available, the Department will assist you in attending national/regional meetings to present a paper or poster. The policies and procedures for this support are as follows:


Every Thesis MS and PhD student is eligible to receive funds to present his/her work at one meeting each fiscal year (July-June).

You must be a registered full-time graduate student presenting (not just co-author) a paper, based on work done at Florida State University, at a national/regional meeting. International meetings will be handled separately.

The Department will provide a fixed amount of money based on the following mileage table. The figures are based on radius of travel from Tallahassee to the meeting site. No vicinity mileage is included. You will be reimbursed up to the amount which can legally be reimbursed under the State of Florida's travel procedures.


At least 2 weeks prior to your departure, submit to the Biology Graduate Office a notice of acceptance of your paper and evidence that you will be the presenter (i.e., abstract) along with the Funded Travel Authorization form ). The Congress of Graduate Students (COGS) may also have available funds. For information on funds from COGS, please visit the COGS website.

Upon your return you must immediately fill out a Reimbursement Voucher. Failure to do so within the first week of your return will result in NO reimbursement.

The maximum amount that any one person can receive is $800.00.

We are aware that this policy is less than perfect as it is implemented, please feel free to provide rational input, in writing, concerning any problems which arise.
