Professional Development Grant 2023-2024

Introduction

The purpose of this grant is to further students' academic and professional success outside of the classroom. This includes funding to attend conferences, research presentations, seminars, remote opportunities, and other experiences that will enhance the student’s leadership, professionalism, academics, and/or career. This application is open to both graduate and undergraduate students and can fund in-person and online events. We will not fund the cost of travel, classes, preparation courses, or any other expenses beyond the registration cost of the opportunity. 

Applicants will be asked to validate their attendance at the event. The grant takes the form of reimbursement of receipts provided by the recipient; therefore, while applicants do not need to register before applying for the grant, recipients must register and pay prior to receiving the grant money. Applicants may apply for this grant for registration expenses for future events or events on/after August 21st, 2023.
