Graduate Student Conference Reimbursement Fund
The AS&E Graduate Student Conference Reimbursement Fund supports students who wish to attend or present at a conference or professional meeting.
Each year, graduate students travel to professional conferences, both within the United States and abroad, to further their research and engage with colleagues in their respective fields. The Graduate Student Conference Reimbursement Fund is a highly competitive, merit-based award that provides funds (up to $300 or $600) to defray the costs associated with presenting research or to attend conferences and meetings where new research in their field is presented.
Funding is limited, and applications are reviewed on a first-come, first-serve basis. Applicants are encouraged to apply early. Each graduate student is eligible for reimbursement of the following for one conference per fiscal year (July 1 - June 30):
- up to $600 if presenting their work at a conference or professional meeting; or
- up to $300 to attend a conference or professional meeting without presenting.
Applications must be received by June 1st and receipts by June 15th, at the latest, for any given fiscal year, and can be used for past conferences within the same fiscal year. Students may receive additional funding from their department or other sources. These funds are separate from the reimbursement provided by the Dean’s Office and/or Graduate Student Council and may require separate authorization.
To read the guidelines for eligibility and to apply for funding, please go to Graduate School of Arts and Sciences Student Conference Reimbursement Application or the School of Engineering Graduate Student Reimbursement Application.
The Graduate Student Conference Reimbursement Fund is sponsored by the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences, the School of Engineering, and the Graduate Student Council.
