GPSO Conference Funding is awarded once per semester with funds distributed near the end of the term. These funds are sent directly to IUB accounts and may be used for funding in advance of your event or to reimburse events during the award semester. We encourage all IUB academic departments to consider applying for this award when planning their next graduate-student oriented academic conference.
The GPSO expects that these funds be used in an appropriate manner and help to offset the incurred costs of academic conferences (i.e. printing, publicity, honorariums). To that end, we trust that recipients will avoid using their granted funds for non-academic, extraneous costs such as hospitality charges including alcohol and catering.
Please note that Conference Grants support hosting conferences at IU-B. To attend a conference, you should apply for a Travel Award.
DEADLINE: 11:59pm, Monday, November 7th, 2014

Make sure you come out to our Travel Awards Workshop TONIGHT in the Social Science Research Commons (Woodburn 200) from 5-7pm!

We are seeking five students for the 2014-2015 Diversity Council.
The Diversity Council will propose legislation to improve the inclusivity of graduate student life, and support traditionally underrepresented students and organizations.

A position on the Diversity Council will require attendance of the monthly GPSO assembly meetings, a monthly Diversity Council meeting, and the organization of a few events during the 2014-2015 academic year. Members of the Diversity Council will gain experience proposing and passing legislation through a student government, working as part of a team to address issues faced by students at IU, and planning and developing initiatives addressing the needs of diverse student communities.
Interested graduate students should direct questions to the GPSO Liaison, Julianna Gjonaj, at firstname.lastname@example.org. To apply for a Diversity Council position, please submit a Curriculum Vita or Resume and a cover letter stating 1) the program and degree you are in, 2) your interest in the position, and 3) what contributions you wish to make to the Diversity Council.

GPSO has posted our Fall Travel Awards application.
The GPSO Travel Award is offered through a competitive process for graduate and professional students at Indiana University Bloomington. A flat award of $500 is given to help support travel expenses to conferences at which the student’s work will be presented (i.e. speeches, posters or interactive design), or to help support travel to workshops, special trainings, competitions and auditions that will benefit the student professionally. Funds may be used for registration fees, presentation materials, transportation, and lodging/food associated with the conference, workshop, training, competition or audition.
