Research and Travel Fund (R & T Fund)

The Graduate Student Association Research and Travel Fund (R&T Fund) was established as a way to help University of Alabama students involved in conference presentation and research. GSA feels that conference presentation and research is essential to the academic growth and development of students attending The University of Alabama.

The Research and Travel Committee (R&T Committee) is charged with the responsibility of administering R&T Funds received from the Student Government Association (SGA) Financial Affairs Committee (FAC). The application standards utilized by the R&T Committee are designed to evaluate requests in a fair and unbiased manner, thus providing equal opportunity for all students.
