Application Deadline: March 29, 2021

Do you need to travel internationally for your short-term research or field work?  

The Einaudi Center sponsors academic travel for individual Cornell graduate students and professional students. If you’re traveling between the United States and a host country for activities directly related to your dissertation or thesis research—or for other academic experiences in the international arena—Einaudi can help you get there. 

Travel grants must be used for airfare only. The awards do not fund travel to international conferences. 

International Travel Approval

Due to COVID-19 restrictions, students are required to secure university approval for Cornell-funded international travel. If you receive a travel grant in this cycle, you will need to secure permission to travel before claiming your award.

Learn about current Cornell travel policies and how to petition for permission to travel internationally. Submit your petition at least four to six weeks before your scheduled travel.


Up to $2,000. 


Graduate students or students enrolled in Cornell’s professional schools are eligible, with the following exceptions:

  • Students graduating in May 2021
  • Students who have not used 2019 or 2020 awards
