The GSA Foundation has awarded $4,500 to each of the six GSA sections. The money, when combined with additional funds from the sections, is used to assist both undergraduate and graduate student members of GSA. Thanks, GSAF!
Individual award amounts typically range from $300 to over $700 depending on the number of students applying, funds available that year, and travel distance to the meeting.
