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 and send to Joan Christian by Friday, Oct 23. More info about the awards may be found here

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