Conference Presentation Awards for Graduate Students (during Covid-19): Applications to Joan Christian by Oct 25

The Graduate College has revamped its Conference Travel Award program in light of travel restrictions related to Covid-19.  The new and temporary program is called the “Conference Presentation Award” program.  Whereas the previous “Conference Travel Awards” covered travel to in-person conferences, “Conference Presentation Awards” will cover registration fees for virtual conferences.  Once pandemic-related travel restrictions are lifted, the program will return to its previous iteration and will support actual travel to in-person conferences.

The Graduate College provides awards of up to $350 for students to participate in virtual conferences to present papers, posters, or creative work. Awards will not cover participation unless the student is making a presentation.

Interested student should fill out this form https://grad.illinois.edu/sites/default/files/PDFs/Conf-travel-dept-shee... and send to Joan Christian by Friday, Oct 23. More info about the awards may be found here https://grad.illinois.edu/general/travelaward

The department will make determinations of which five applications will be sent to the Graduate College.
