Travel Expenses for Graduate Students on the Job Market

Funding is restricted to active students in English (no Comp Lit, no alums) for reimbursement of expenses to attend the MLA convention.

Funding is restricted to students who have applied for jobs, but is not restricted to those who are offered interviews at the MLA convention.

Students may be reimbursed only once, for one trip to MLA. Reimbursable expenses include lodging, conference, and travel (air, train, bus, cab, shuttle, and parking) - but not meals.

Amount of reimbursement depends upon demand. Students must notify the Graduate office of their intention to request reimbursement by December 15. Receipts must be presented to the Graduate office by January 14.
