WCAS Conference Travel Grants

WCAS Conference Travel Grants


Weinberg College undergraduate students may apply for conference travel grants if they are presenting the results of their research or creative work at professional conferences.  Only students who are presenting their work at the conference may receive conference travel grants; those who are attending but not presenting are not eligible.

Weinberg is pleased to partner with the Office of the Provost's Conference Travel Grant program in financing conference travel costs.  The Weinberg conference travel grants will support a maximum of 50% of the travel costs up to $500, and the Provost Office program offers the same.  However, students must make separate applications to both programs.
