PhD Student Travel Grants
Requirements and Instructions
Updated April 2016
PhD students in the College of Engineering can apply for funding to help cover the costs to participate in an academic conference. $300 may be offered to selected recipients for travel and registration expenses. $300 will be provided every two years. Conference participation should take place before your dissertation defense. The funding is provided by the Dean's Office, and is offered on a first-come, first-served basis until funds run out. Submissions will be reviewed by the College Graduate Program Committee.
To qualify for funding you must:
- Be a College of Engineering PhD student in good standing with your department.
- Be presenting (poster or oral presentation) at a nationally recognized research conference (i.e. ASCE, ASEE, ASME, IEEE, etc.).
- Be endorsed by your major professor and your department head. You will upload this endorsement, along with a research abstract using the file upload box.
