Conference Travel

When you’re presenting your research at conferences across the country, we’ll make it possible for you to get there. We offer conference travel funding to support SGS graduate students who are presenting their research at national and international conferences. There are currently different protocols in place for applying for such funding depending on your graduate program.

The School of Graduate Studies Conference and Research Award program is designed to provide support to help defray costs associated with off-campus research activities and presenting at academic, scholarly, and scientific conferences. 

Priority will be to support students who do not have access to other resources to support these activities and who are making good progress in their degree program. Support is provided in the form of a scholarship award that will be paid to the student through student accounting. The application portal will open on December 11, 2023, and is accessible here. The portal will close on February 9, 2024 at 5pm ET. Students may apply for funding to support conference or research travel retroactively back to July 1, 2023, and prospectively up to June 30, 2024. We anticipate the maximum award to a student will be $1000. Awards will be distributed equitably across our graduate programs.
