-- Frequently Asked Questions --

Are there examples of successful applications?

Yes! The Travel, Professional, GSOGA, and Symposium Grants all have links to example applications at the bottom of their respective pages.

May I submit Travel and Professional Grants at the same time?

Yes, Travel and Professional Grants may be submitted at the same time and can both be recieved during the same cycle; however, each application should pertain to an independent event. The purpose of each Grant is to support experiences that are exclusive from the other. If you have any questions, please reach out to pgsg.grantreview@gmail.com.

I have been awarded a PGSG Grant! What should I do now?

First and foremost, congratulations!!! Please now review our REIMBURSEMENT policies in the tab above to know the required documentation and items eligible for reimbursement.

What makes a successful Grant application?

Successful applications are clear, concise, well organized, and should not contain spelling/grammar/punctuation errors. Essays should be free of field specific jargon. The review committee recommends that applicants have their application essay reviewed by the Purdue Writing Lab (https://owl.english.purdue.edu/writinglab/).
