Survey for Grad Students Who Combined Professional and Personal Travel
This survey is for graduate students who have leveraged research-related or professional travel into a personal travel/vacation/sight-seeing experience such that the former subsidized the latter to some degree. The professional travel might take the form of field work, conferences, collaborations, fellowships, etc. For example, your department/advisor might have paid for you to fly to a conference in another city with lodging for four days, and you personally paid to for an extra two days of lodging so that you could visit friends and explore the city.

The data from this survey will be used in a post on GradHacker (https://www.insidehighered.com/blogs/gradhacker) on 10/18/2017. The survey will close on 10/7/2017. You may be directly quoted as an example, or the information you provide may be compiled with others' to show patterns and provide advice to other grad students looking to combine professional and personal travel.

Thank you!
