Graduate Conference Travel Fund Request

The History Department strongly encourages graduate student participation in regional and national conferences as part of their graduate education. To that end, the Department has limited travel funds available to offset conference travel expenses. This funding is only available to those delivering papers at conferences.

In seeking funding for conference travel, you should apply to the Department first since many other funding sources expect matching funds from your department. After that, you can apply for funding from: 1) Arts & Sciences; 2) Academic Affairs; 3) Extramural sources such as professional organizations, conference conveners, etc. Remember to make your applications in this order.

  3. Submit duplicate copies of the completed form and supporting document to Doug Johnson ( and Dr. Michael Brose (
