2012 Travel Awards for [Underrepresented] Prospective Graduate Students
In order to assist departments in the recruitment of underrepresented graduate students, the Franklin
College's Office of Inclusion & Diversity Leadership, has made travel funds available for prospective
graduate student travel awards. These awards are targeted at underrepresented students who have
been recommended to the Graduate School for admission to a Franklin College graduate program but

of their enrollment at UGA
Activities that will take place during the student's visit in order to support their recruitment and
subsequent enrollment at UGA and a brief budget with the amount requested
How the graduate program currently supports diversity and inclusion (i.e. what practices,
strategies are used)
A 1-2 page report of the outcome of the prospective student's visit will be expected 30 days after its
conclusion. In this report, the sponsoring department should indicate:
