Student resources from Paulette Maria Penzvalto, President, UC Graduate Student Governance Association
Students in need of travel funds may apply for funding from GSGA (up to $400 a year). These funds are consistently available, so I encourage CCM students to exhaust their department funds prior to applying to us. http://www.uc.edu/gsga/StudentAwards.html
Also, please take a moment check out the Freesource (http://freesource.wikispaces.com/) for more ideas about how graduate students, as well as undergraduates, can access free resources to help improve quality of life during their tenure at UC. I hope that you will share this with all students who may approach you expressing financial need.
Thirdly, the GSGA is partnering with the Center for Community Engagement to establish UC’s first graduate student-dedicated volunteerism platform, called GAPS (Graduates Assisting Public Scholarship). GAPS would be a terrific asset to CCM by giving students the opportunities to perform in the community, in an outreach setting. http://www.uc.edu/cce/student/GAPS.html
There are links to all of these services on the Freesource.
