Academic Conference Fund

The Academic Conference Fund is a great resource to offset the cost of presenting at an academic conference. Awards of up to $600.00 (up to $800.00 for international travel) will be given to those invited to present or perform at a conference/meeting.


Your academic department may be able to alleviate some of the financial burden of attending or presenting at a conference. Contact your department and/or advisor to inquire about their ability to help fund your trip.
