This fund is intended to provide graduate and senior undergraduate students in the Faculty of Arts with financial support to attend a conference in their discipline at which they will present a paper, or play a role of similar significance. Students who receive an award from this fund may wish to include it on their resume under the title "Faculty of Arts Conference Travel Award".
Other sources of funding should be pursued, including the Faculty of Arts Endowment Fund (one competition a year, in the Winter term) or the Faculty of Graduate Studies travel award. Students who have obtained funding from these, or other sources, may still apply to the Dean but total funding cannot exceed normal travel expenses.
There will normally be 2 competitions each year, with deadlines of April 1 and November 1***. Application is to be made in writing to the Associate Dean (C/O 307 Fletcher Argue Building) – in addition to the application form, the application must include:
***IMPORTANT NOTE: If your travel will occur between April 1 and August 31, you should apply for the April 1 award deadline. If your travel will occur between September 1 and March 31, you should apply for the November 1 award deadline.
