Conference Funding

There is a limited availability of funds to assist graduate students in presenting research work at and attending academic conferences. As of Fall 2015, PhD students, remaining at the university longer than Masters students, will receive up to $550 towards conferences and Masters students will receive up to $350. Students who are attending a conference, but not presenting, are eligible for $200. This amount will come out of the total $350/$550 each student is eligible for throughout their graduate career.

All submissions must be typed! Hand-written submissions will not be considered for approval! Thank you for your compliance with typed submissions. Documents are fillable Word Forms. Use the link below for the document – you need to open the document in Microsoft Word, not in your browser window.

Please make sure to submit your application by close of business on the appropriate deadline.  You must apply in advance in order to be eligible for funding.  Late applications are NOT accepted.  You can always withdraw your request with no penalty if you decide not to attend the conference for any reason.
