Conference Travel Grants

For Undergraduate and Graduate Students

Applicants must be enrolled in full-time undergraduate, graduate, or professional degree programs at the University of Michigan. Priority is given to applicants who have not received prior ASC funding and to projects focused on Sub-Saharan Africa.

Subject to availability of funding, awards will be made to students who will present Africa-focused papers or serve as chairs or discussants for Africa-focused sessions at regional, national, or international conferences. These awards are intended to supplement other University of Michigan conference participation grants.

Award amount: Up to $500 for domestic and $1,000 for international travel to support Africa-focused conference participation.

Application Requirements: Applicants must submit an application form, a copy of the conference program/invitation, a letter of recommendation (preferably from your advisor), and documentation about other funding requests.

Deadlines: Fall term - October 15; Winter term - February 24.
