The Department of History aims to help graduate students attend academic conferences or research trips required for the completion of a thesis or dissertation by providing financial travel support help. Travel support is exclusively for students enrolled in UW-Milwaukee’s History Graduate Program and may only be used to support activities that are directly related to a student’s progress towards earning a graduate degree in history and professional development in the discipline of history.

Applicants are expected to provide a statement of purpose outlining the research they plan to conduct and its significance for their thesis, along with a budget of anticipated expenses.

To apply, please follow the directions found in the Travel Support Application (docx).
