What are the restrictions on GSA Conference and Research Grants?

  • GSA Conference and Research grants can be applied to conference-related travel expenses only, which include airfare, transportation, and lodging. Food-related expenses are ineligible and will not be reimbursed.

  • If expenses incurred are less than the grant awarded, then the balance of funds will be returned to the GSA. (For example, if you are awarded $125, but only spend $100, then the $25 balance is returned to the GSA.)
