If the costs of attending a conference exceed those available through other sources, including those on campus, students may apply to the Center for supplemental funding every two years (i.e. students in two year or fewer programs can be funded once, others can be funded up to two times during their entire student tenure). Funds will be made available taking into account the number of students applying, the availability of other travel funds, the amount requested, and previous travel funding from the Center. Requests must be made six to eight weeks before the conference.
