Most doctoral programs provide stipend for the doctoral students, but very little money for travel and conferences, this is true even for faculty at many places. We were lucky to have the Sheth travel money to cover our trips to some important conferences to know the most current research in our field and also start to socialize with the future colleague. And I have found that the trips I have been during my doctoral program very beneficial for my research program development. Over the years, I have developed three broad research topics such as self-construal, decision making and global-local identity, all these topics were partly initiated or developed from some conferences I attended back in my Pitt program.
Over the years, many individuals have been the recipient of funding assistance through our granting partners and have achieved great successes using this support.
