The International Affairs Travel Fund is available to full time Brown graduate students who are conducting research abroad or have been invited to deliver a paper orally before an audience at an international conference.
Only one application for the International Travel Fund is permitted in a fiscal (budget) year, July 1 - June 30, and is intended solely as a supplementary allowance to assist with related travel expenses.
Awards may range from $250-$1000. Applicants may combine this fund with Graduate School funds and other sources.
Requests for the IATF may be submitted at any time prior to travel.
