This award is competitively awarded to provide final-stage funding over four-to-sixth months for UF PhD candidates, allowing them time and resources to focus exclusively on their dissertation through defense, final clearance by the Editorial Office, and graduation. It is for candidates who have exhausted all other means of support.  For information, instructions and application forms online, click on this link:

GRADUATE SCHOOL DOCTORAL RESEARCH TRAVEL AWARD

 

This award provides research-related travel expenses for UF PhD students in selected majors in the humanities, arts, and social sciences, so they can effectively conduct doctoral dissertation research away from UF if department departmental funding is inadequate.  For information, instructions and application forms online, click on this link:
