Funded through donations from
friends and supporters of the Center for the Study of Women, travel grants
assist graduate and undergraduate UCLA students with travel expenses related to
academic or professional conference presentations and field research on women,
gender, and sexuality.
CSW cannot reimburse travel to states on
the law AB 1887 prohibited list. Law AB 1887 prohibits state-funded travel to a
state that has passed a law that (1) authorizes discrimination based on sexual
orientation, gender identity and gender expression, or (2) voids or repeals
existing state or local protections against such discrimination. For more
information and the current list of states, visit Notice of New
Law AB 1887 and FAQs regarding AB 1887 Requirements. If
your travel is to a state on the list, we cannot consider your application.
