Graduate Student Fund

Support a Graduate Student | Information for Graduate Students

One of the great aspects of the annual ASHE conference is how it has become a place for graduate student professional development. Whether it is presenting a poster or paper, networking with faculty members who they have read, or attending sessions or a pre-conference, ASHE has been integral at helping aspiring scholars begin their careers. 

In order to support graduate student growth and development, ASHE established the Graduate Student Travel Scholarship program in 2008 and as of 2019, had awarded more than 50 scholarships. In 2020, in response to the COVID-19 Pandemic we raised nearly $16,000 from members and conference attendees for this scholarship! These funds provided free conference registration for every graduate student who indicated financial need during the registration process.

For the 2021 Annual Conference, ASHE is committed to awarding at least 20 $400 travel scholarships to graduate students. Any donations received between now and July 15 will add to this allocation and allow us to support more students.


In order to provide these scholarships for graduate students, we need your support! Please join the ASHE Board of Directors, Past Presidents, and many of our members who have already committed to support the ASHE Graduate Student Fund by sponsoring a student(s).

Any size donation will help!  All donations are tax-deductible.
