There are two types of Conference Travel Awards: Presenter and Non-Presenter.

The Presenter award is for students who wish to present their research at a conference/workshop (poster/paper/oral presentation).  A student can receive up to a maximum of $500 per conference/workshop.

The Non-Presenter award is for students who wish to attend a conference or research-related workshop or research-related seminar, etc. A student can receive up to a maximum of $200 per conference/workshop/seminar.

While the process above applies to most of our graduate students, we are transitioning our existing system of travel awards to a more comprehensive and collaborative approach with each college across our different campuses. If you are a student in CEAS or CECH, please follow the same procedure to complete your application but kindly submit your documents only to the business officers from your corresponding college to avoid processing delays.
