School of Music Graduate Student Travel Information

School of Music Graduate Funding Requests are now closed for the 2023-2024 Academic Year.

The School of Music, College of Visual and Performing Arts, and Graduate School maintain separate, but connected, travel funding programs for graduate students. Students should follow these procedures to solicit funding. 

  1. All travel requests begin in the department. Students should not begin a request for travel by soliciting the College of Visual and Performing Arts or the Graduate School Directly. The first step is to complete this form: School of Music Travel Application Form [no longer accepting applications]
  2. If eligible, representatives from the School of Music will then assist students in applying to the Graduate School for matching funding. Note that some activities that are eligible for funding from the School of Music but are not eligible for funding from the Graduate School. Please do not submit funding requests directly to the Graduate School without approval from an Associate Director. Graduate School travel funding information is available here: Graduate Student Travel 
  3. After either (1) a determination that travel is not eligible for Graduate School funding, or (2) a confirmation of funding from the Graduate School, students may then continue to the College of Visual and Performing Arts application, with information available here: https://www.depts.ttu.edu/visual-performing-arts/research/student-creative-activity-awards/index.php


In general, with a mix of funds from all available sources, graduate travel funding may be available in amounts between $300 and $1500. In general, the School of Music will provide funding in amounts between $300 and $500 to be used as a matching source for College and Graduate School Programs. 

Funding is only available once per academic year per student.
