Inactive/Recurring Committees

Travel Grants Review Committee

The Travel Grants Review Committee reviews the travel grant applications for a specific travel period. Being a part of the Travel Grants Committee is a one-time commitment that consists of reading all of the travel grants for that travel period. The committee then meets for roughly 3 hours (depending on the number of applications) to discuss all of the applications and make the awards. The review committee is anonymous to the applicants; sitting on the committee earns you two (2) points towards your next travel grant application. You may not sit on the committee if you have submitted an application for that travel period. The committee meets within 2 weeks after the travel grants deadline; announcements will be sent out seeking volunteers. If you are interested in being on the Travel Grants Review Committee, you may contact the GSA Grants Officer at
