Please note that for local and virtual conferences, registration expenses only will be considered a fundable expense.  

There is a limited availability of funds to assist graduate students in presenting research work at and attending academic conferences. PhD students, remaining at the university longer than Masters students, will receive up to $750 towards conferences and Masters students will receive up to $550. Students who are attending a conference, but not presenting, are eligible for $200. This amount will come out of the total $550/$750 each student is eligible for throughout their graduate career.

The GSA Conference Funding Application is available as an online form on GSA’s UBLinked page.  Please note that you must be signed in to UBLinked and “Join” as a member of GSA in order to be able to access the form on the Homepage. A screenshot of where the form can be found is included below.  Just note that after you “Join” you may need to wait a few minutes and refresh your browser before the form will appear.  If you have any questions, please email gsa-feedback@buffalo.edu.
