IAGLR confers one or two awards (based on availability of funds) to provide travel support for a master's, Ph.D. student or a post-doctoral fellow from countries outside of the United States or Canada to attend IAGLR's annual Conference on Great Lakes Research, which alternates each year between a Canadian and United States site.

The International Student Travel Award implements IAGLR’s intent to broadening its scope to large lakes internationally. Through the travel scholarship, IAGLR seeks to expand relationships with researchers outside US and Canada; to provide opportunities for international students and recent graduates to benefit from the IAGLR research community; and to build capacity and engage members from developing countries. 

Funds are restricted to covering the costs of attending the IAGLR Conference in the year of the award. If travel to the Conference does not occur in the year of the conferring of the award, funds are forfeited.
