2018 Graduate Travel Reports

Through the Graduate Awards for Research & Training, Duke University Center for International & Global Studies (DUCIGS) provides graduate students working on international research topics with funding for travel to archival and research sites inside and outside the continental United States, for attendance at specialized conferences, or for foreign language and methods training. DUCIGS awards generally range from $500 to $2,000, and applicants are encouraged to seek additional funding sources for longer research periods. Eligible applicants must be enrolled full time in a graduate program or professional school at Duke University during the academic year in which the award is used. In the 2018 competition, twenty-seven Duke graduate students received DUCIGS travel grants. The number of awards is subject to availability of funds.
