The Ph.D. Program in History

at the Graduate Center of the City University of New York


GC Conference Presentation Support Fund for Ph.D. Students

The 2014-2015 Conference Presentation Support fund will provide funds to Graduate Center doctoral students in Ph.D. programs (Audiology, Physical Therapy, Public Health, & Nursing not eligible) for travel to professional meetings and conferences to present invited papers and posters or to participate in scheduled sessions. The 2014-2015 Conference Presentation Support fund will provide more than 400 awards, to a maximum of $300 each. The grant may be used for travel, lodging, or other expenses related directly to research presentation or participation.


Eligibility Applicants must be registered full-time doctoral students within seven years of their first semester of enrollment. Applicants must be presenting a paper or poster or participating at a scholarly professional or student organized conference and must include The graduate Center, CUNY as their academic affiliation for the conference program. If not, we will be unable to reimburse you for your expenses, even if you were approved for the funding. Attendance alone will NOT be funded. Prior to approval, eligibility for funding will be evaluated upon submission of an application together with documentation of acceptance to present or participate at a professional or student organized conference. For those awarded funding, original receipts and documentation of participation must be submitted to the Office of the Vice President of Student Affairs within three weeks after the conference, or if the conference has already taken place, within three weeks of notification of the award. If not, the award will be forfeited. Applicants may apply for funding while waiting for confirmation of acceptance from conference organizers, but no grant will be issued without submission of proper documentation of conference participation. Doctoral students may receive only one Conference Presentation Support grant per academic year.
