Funds are limited and will be awarded based on a distribution of students in different programs, so although we encourage you to apply earlier in the application period if you can, the applications will remain open for the full period, and simply applying on the first day of the application period will not guarantee funding. Late applications will not be considered.To be eligible, the conference must occur prior to degree conferral and applicants must be in good academic standing.

Did you have a paper accepted for presentation at a professional conference? There is a limited amount of funding available on a first-come-first-served basis each year from the Office of the Provost. To request funds, please send an email to the Associate Academic Vice Presidentspecifying the name of the conference, the location, title and date of the presentation, and amount requested. Please also ensure that your faculty advisor sends a supporting email confirming your paper has been accepted for presentation at the conference.
