Conference Travel Awards [AWARDS PORTAL NOW OPEN]

The Graduate School announces the opening of its new Awards Portal, an online system designed to streamline the application process for Conference Travel Awards. If you are interested in applying for an award, you must do so via the online system (even if you have already submitted a paper application to your graduate program).

To access the application for Conference Travel Awards, please visit the Awards Portal.

You must complete the application, taking extra care to select the appropriate graduate program and to provide an accurate, up-to-date email address. Error messages might appear as you fill out your application, but as soon as you input the correct information and click on the next available field, those messages will disappear.


Graduate Students

  • You may apply only once per spring and fall award cycle. Because the new system will not accept late submissions, you must submit your application no later than March 8 at 11:59 PM.
  • Please note that individual graduate programs might establish earlier deadlines for internal review of Conference Travel Award applications. If your graduate program has decided to adopt an earlier deadline for internal review, you will be notified by your program’s administrators.

Graduate Program/Track Administrators

  • Graduate program/track administrators must submit their ranked applications to the Graduate School no later than March 15 at 5:00 PM.
