Conference Participation Award

Applications for the Conference Participation Award (formerly the Doctoral Travel Fellowship) will be accepted through June 30. Detailed information, including eligibility criteria and the application form, can be found on our website and application information will be appearing in SoapBox posts for grads throughout June.  

As a reminder, the Doctoral Dissertation Fellowship is transitioning to a summer fellowship where applications for funding in Summer 2022 will be accepted in February 2022. As part of this transition, a limited submission cycle will occur in July-August 2021 for applicants who will graduate by May 2022. Details will appear in SoapBox as we get closer to July but I wanted to highlight that here, as well.

If you have any questions about these fellowships, please reach out to Abbey Campbell ( or Abbey recently joined The Graduate School following Barbara Parziale’s retirement and will be administering these awards going forward.
