GPSO Announces Fall 2010 Travel Award Winners



GPSO Announces Fall 2010 Travel Award Winners 
Each semester the GPSO offers a competitive, financial award for graduate and professional students to help support academic travel. The award covers expenses for events that promote academic and professional development, such as conferences, workshops, competitions and auditions. Funds may be used for registration fees, presentation materials, transportation costs, lodging and per diem expenses. The recipients are selected through a competitive, merit-based process in which an independent panel of fellow graduate and professional students review and assess anonymous applications. This year there were nearly 140 applicants, and 14 award winners were selected from these. The GPSO would like to congratulate the following award recipients:
