Conference Travel Grants
Weinberg College undergraduate students may apply for conference travel grants if they are presenting the results of their research or creative work at professional conferences. Only students who are presenting their work at the conference may receive conference travel grants; those who are attending but not presenting are not eligible.
Weinberg is pleased to partner with the Office of the Provost in financing conference travel costs. The Weinberg conference travel grants will support a maximum of 50% of the travel costs and conference attendance up to $500, and URG conference travel grants also will support a maximum of 50% of travel and conference attendance costs up to $500. Students must make separate applications to Weinberg and to the Provost's Office.
Applications for Conference Travel Grants may be submitted at any time to Weinberg and to the Provost's Office. Students can expect a decision on their proposal two to three weeks after Weinberg receives the complete application package.
Applications for Weinberg College conference presentation grants are made via an online protocol -- similar to the one used by the Undergraduate Research Grants program administered by the Associate Provost's Office. This protocol is available at: https://urg.northwestern.edu. From that site you can access links for both Provost's Office and WCAS grants.and conference attendance Back to top
