PLEASE NOTE:  Due to the University’s policies related to student organization travel, GSA is only able to approve funding for domestic conferences, including U.S. territories.  International travel is still not permitted due to the ongoing COVID-19 health crisis.  For virtual conferences, registration expenses only will be fundable.  Please see the University’s COVID-19 FAQ page for Clubs and Organizations, specifically the information related to Travel/Transportation, for more details and regulations.


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 $550 towards conferences and Masters students will receive up to $350. Students who are attending a conference, but not presenting, are eligible for $200. This amount will come out of the total $350/$550 each student is eligible for throughout their graduate career.

The GSA Conference Funding Application is now available as an online form on GSA’s UBLinked page.  Please note that you must sign in and “join” as a member of GSA on UBLinked in order to be able to access the form on the Homepage.  If you have any questions, please email
