Conference Presentation Grants
Conference presentation grants are intended to help support professional or academic development for current graduate and professional students in CEHD. Due to limited funding, GradSEHD grants are only available to registered students and are intended to offer partial support for individual graduate and professional students. Applicants are eligible for a maximum amount of $250. Eligible expenses include airfare, ground transportation, lodging, and conference/meeting registration fee. Ground transportation and lodging within the Twin Cities Metro and alcohol are not eligible expenses.
- GradSEHD receives its funding from both the Council of Graduate Students (COGS) and the Professional Student Government (PSG). Conference presentation grants are only available to current graduate and professional students in CEHD who pay the COGS or PSG Student Services Fee.
- Students may only receive one conference presentation grant per academic year.
- Must have been accepted to present research or other work directly related to your degree program or have leadership role at conference.
