COGS Attendance and Presentation Grants for Individual Graduate Students

UPDATE: COGS is now offering Attendance and Presentation Grants for VIRTUAL conferences only. The application for the November-February funding period opens on October 14th, 2020. Please click the links below to apply for these grants.


The Congress of Graduate Students understands the importance of attending conferences, presenting research, and representing Florida State University to the national and international academic community. The COGS Grant Program was created to support students in these endeavors. Funds are made available on a first come, first serve basis, with limited funds available in each funding period. Once funds are depleted for a funding cycle, COGS is unable to issue additional funds, regardless of an indivudal’s eligibility status. Graduate students are encouraged to apply for funds at the beginning of the grant period or one month prior to travel, whichever comes first.
