- All WPI graduate students are eligible to apply and must still be a WPI graduate student at the time of the conference itself.
- You can apply only if you are giving an oral or poster presentation at a regional, national, or international meeting.
- Funds may not be used to attend a meeting if you are not the presenting author.
- Funds may not be used for networking or collaborative visits that are not associated with a conference.
- Funds cannot be used for society memberships.
- Students may apply no more than once per academic year.
- There is no limit on the number of graduate students from a Principal Investigator's group that may apply each year, but this may affect the award decisions.
- If an award is being made, the student will be given $500 or $1000 towards travel including conference registration, travel to the meeting location, and hotel accommodations. (Meals are not covered by the Travel Fund.) The Principal Investigator or Department/Program should fund the rest of the costs. The student should not be responsible for these expenses.
- Acceptable items include transportation, lodging, meeting registration, and poster printing. Meals are not supported.
- All expense reports should be forwarded to the Dean of Graduate Studies in Boynton Hall within one month of the date of the conference. Any funds not claimed within one month of the conference date will be forfeited.
The graduate travel award applications will re-open once WPI begins to permit sponsored travel again.
Typically, there is an application window each Fall and Spring, with deadlines in October and March, respectively.
To apply for conference travel assistance, you must complete the application. The application will be available again once the assistance program reopens.
There are two parts. The first part is completed by the graduate student. When the student enters the advisor's email address, a second part of the application will be sent directly to the advisor. Both parts must be completed for consideration.
Funding is competitive and limited, and a review process will be used to evaluate applications.
