Pace Undergraduate Student Academic Conference Travel Fund for Joint Presentations with Faculty Mentors
The Office of Student Success is pleased to announce the Pace Undergraduate Student Academic Conference Travel Fund for Joint Presentations with Faculty Mentors as a new initiative funded by the Provost office and available to Pace undergraduate students who will be presenting their research at professional conferences as part of their Pace Path. This new, competitive fund is open to undergraduate students who have been accepted to present their research at a professional conference with their faculty mentor.
To apply and be considered for up to $800 in reimbursement funds for a student travel, students/faculty can download the application here and submit to Jennifer Crespo at firstname.lastname@example.org at least one month before the conference date. Only students can receive funding through this application process. Faculty should consult with their Dean’s Office for their own travel expenses, and are encouraged to utilize Kenan funds when possible. There is a limit of two students per faculty member for this program. Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis throughout the year until the fund is exhausted.
In order to be considered for the program, both the application and the student’s resume must be submitted. Faculty will also need to include the letter of acceptance from the sponsoring organization for the faculty member and student. The presentation must be for research or creative scholarship, and the student must be an active presenter at the conference and listed in the conference program. In addition, students who are chosen as conference travel fund recipients are required to sign up for the Alumni-Student Mentoring Program. The Alumni- Student Mentoring Program is a unique opportunity for you to form meaningful and lasting relationships with alumni who are passionate about helping students like you discover and explore opportunities beyond the campus walls. More information will be provided if you are selected for funding.
Please note: Submitting an application will not guarantee funding, and acceptance does not guarantee an $800 grant. This is a reimbursement program for faculty and handled via the ChromeRiver application. All travel, lodging, etc. must be purchased upfront by the faculty sponsor, not students, and all subsequent receipts must be kept and submitted by the faculty sponsor.
