International Institute Conference Travel Grants

Description: The International Institute Conference Travel Grants provide supplemental travel support for graduate and professional school students who are presenting papers at conferences in the U.S.A. and its territories. Papers must be on international or area studies topics, and must have been selected by a juried process. Students may apply each year for one travel support grant of up to $300.

Eligibility Criteria: Grants are available to graduate students for travel to make presentations at area studies meetings, annual disciplinary meetings, and similar conferences and workshops. No support will be given for participation on non-juried panels.  Preference will be given to applicants who are presenting on juried panels on which more than half of the participants are from institutions other than University of Michigan.

Application Deadline & Submission: Applications are accepted on a rolling basis and are reviewed at the beginning of each month.  Applications should be submitted at least four weeks in advance of planned travel (if possible) and must include:

  • the online application, and
  • documentation confirming formal participation in the conference as well as a list of panel members must be sent to iifellowships-travel@umich.edu.
