Conference Travel Awards - Fall 2022
IU graduate students traveling to academic conferences to present East Asia-related papers or research-related posters may apply for an EASC Conference Travel Award.
Maximum award amount is $500 and is meant to supplement other sources of support, which applicants are strongly encouraged to seek. The College Graduate Office and the Graduate and Professional Student Government (GPSG) also have conference travel funds for graduate students. Applying for these and other travel funds strengthens the EASC Conference Travel Award application. Each graduate student is eligible to receive only one travel award per 12-month period (September to August). Please note that due to Title VI funding regulations, there are some restrictions on the use of an EASC conference travel award for international travel. International travel can be covered but must be approved 6 weeks in advance of the departure date and most likely will require travel on U.S.-owned carriers in order to comply with the Fly America Act. If planning an overseas trip, please contact Theresa Kang at email@example.com as soon as possible. Application Deadline Applications must include: Application One-page abstract of conference paper, poster One-page CV (including G.P.A. of graduate work at IU) Letter of acceptance or copy of the conference program Letter of reference from your research advisor that includes an assessment of the significance of the conference on/in a) your field and b) your career ** Abstract, CV, and Conference Acceptance/Program will all need to be uploaded along with the Application.
