Attending and participating in professional conferences is a very important part of any career. As a graduate student, you are eligible for reduced conference registration rates and you are at a perfect time in your career to experience the networking, knowledge sharing, and overall exhilaration a state or national conference in your field provides. The Graduate College would like to help you attend.
Each academic year, the College of Graduate and Professional Studies will fund travel grants to any graduate students admitted to one of Longwood’s graduate programs (endorsement programs are included) in the following amounts:
In-state conferences: up to $250.00 to cover conference registration and hotel (the grant will not cover meals, travel, or other expenses). When a program has more than 10 students traveling to any single conference, adjustments to this grant amount may be made.
Out-of-state conferences: up to $500.00 to cover conference registration, hotel, and flight or mileage to and from the conference (the grant will not cover meals or other expenses). This grant is only for students presenting, receiving an award, or working at the conference.
Multiple conferences: Funding for two conferences per student may be available if that student is presenting or receiving an award at one or both, depending on availability of funds.
