Financial Matters

Attendance at Conferences

In most cases, decisions regarding the student’s attendance at conferences and funding availability is at the discretion of the Research Advisor. The University provides additional sources of funding to support small travel grants from which students may apply through the Graduate Program Office for Conference Funding. Conference Funding is a funding application process provided by the Graduate Student Assembly and the Provost’s Office for students, student work groups or groups to attend a conference, whether as a participant or as a presenter. The process is managed by the Office of the Assistant Vice Provost for Graduate Education. Students can find more information about the conference funding application process and deadlines here. Please see the department web site for additional information about the department’s Edwin N. Lassettre Graduate Travel Award for students in physical chemistry or chemical physics.
