Expense Guidelines

UPDATE 6/8/21

Travel for Northwestern graduate students is becoming less restricted. As a result, TGS will gradually be transitioning back to regular travel support. As the situation continues to evolve, we expect that further information regarding travel awards (such as Graduate Research Grants and Conference Travel Grants), including any revisions to the current process, will soon be made available. If you have specific questions in the meantime about TGS awards please contact TGS Student Services at

Please note: If the situation related to the pandemic changes, the government, the University, and/or TGS may need to reimpose travel and event-related restrictions.
