DESIGN GRADUATE PROGRAM:  Funding for Research and Scholarly Activities

The program has a limited amount of funds available to current Design graduate students for presenting at a conference and for research activities.

 

 

Conference Travel - Ongoing

 

Graduate students in the Design Graduate Program may apply for funding to help pay the costs of presenting a paper at a professional conference for reimbursable costs such as registration, travel, and meals.  The award is $200 for out-of-town conferences.  For local conferences, registration is reimbursed (up to $200). Awards are limited to one award per student per year.   Download the application and instructions. 

 

Once you return, submit your original receipts (receipts for meals are not necessary as we use the per diem rate), along with a completed Employee Expense Worksheet to me.
