Conference Travel Funding

Until students have passed their general examinations, they are not eligible to apply for conference funding. This typically excludes G1, G2 and G3 students (and some G4 students for the fall deadline). Students in these years should concentrate fully on course work and on acquiring knowledge of their respective fields in preparation for the major and minor exams. While the merit of requests is always taken into consideration, preference will be given to those students who have not received prior funding. If additional funding remains after first-time awards are granted, requests for repeat funding will be decided on a case-by-case basis and support is therefore not guaranteed.

Conference Funding Request


If you have an exam or defense coming up, please contact Liz if you need help booking a room (only if you do not have SERT access). Additionally, please message one of the ASP staff with the relevant details (date, title, attending faculty).  Please refer to the General Exam Guidelines linked below for further information.  Once you have passed your exam, please return the signed Report on the General Examination for the PhD to the ASP office to be added to your file.
