The Academic Conference Fund is now Accepting Requests for FALL 2014 Travel

The purpose of the graduate academic conference fund is to provide grants to support student presentations at academic conferences by offsetting the cost of travel and attendance. Awards of up to $500.00 (up to $750.00 for international travel) will be given to those invited to present or perform at a conference/meeting.

If your travel is between October 1 - December 31, you need to apply during the open submission window of August 1 - September 15.

Funding eligibility is open to all graduate students who

  • Are the primary presenter of research at a professional conference, or whose creative work is accepted for an exhibition or performance at a recognized event.
  • Have the written support from a faculty member who can attest to the quality of the student’s work or the academic benefit of attending the conference/meeting
  • Are in good academic standing with the University
  • Are current graduate students, or recent graduates (within two semesters) whose research was accepted for presentation prior to graduation.
