Conference Travel Scholarships

The School of Human Ecology Graduate Program is offering travel awards to graduate students who are invited to present at professional conferences/exhibits. For the 2021-2022 year, we are also opening this category up to support professional development trainings (e.g., statistical workshops or trainings on research/scholarship/creative work methods). The purpose of the support is to encourage participation in professional development, scholarly research, and/or creative endeavor and to help cover expenses not covered by other sources. Students may apply for a maximum award of $650 for travel ($750 for international travel) to support conference or exhibition participation in a single academic year—September 1 to August 31. They may apply for a maximum of $500 to support professional development in a single academic year.
