Student attendance at professional conferences

Augustana Student Research/Inquiry Committee

The Augustana Student Research/Inquiry Committee has established a program to encourage and underwrite the participation of students in professional conferences. A requirement for applying for funding is that the student be a formal presenter (for example a paper, report or poster) based on a research project conducted by the student under the supervision of an Augustana faculty member.

 Each student is eligible for funding for one conference (up to $1,000) in an academic year.  

Monies granted to a student through this program may be used for conference registration, poster-printing, travel and housing at the conference. Reimbursements for food and incidental expenses are not included. It is expected that this request is made for funds needed in addition to any that are available through your department.

Apply as soon as you are confirmed as a student participant in a conference. If a student is traveling with a group, their faculty advisor should submit an application for the entire group.


If you have any questions, contact Dr. Shara Stough, 309-794-3376, or Dr. Kimberly Murphy, 309-794-3444, co-chairs, Augustana Student Research Committee.
