Internal awards are currently being reviewed. Check back soon for updates!
Funding is available for faculty who are presenting research or creative work. Faculty may receive up to $300 in matching funds from the Graduate School once per fiscal year. The primary funding required for our match may come from anywhere on campus (e.g., provost, college dean, department, etc.). Faculty who are co-presenting the same research or creative work at the same venue with another CWU faculty member(s)
must split the award equally between all co-presenters who apply for funding.
As of July 1, 2015, Graduate School travel funding may be utilized for the following expenditures: ground fare, airfare, lodging, and conference registrations. Per diem (meals) will no longer be reimbursed.
To request funding from the Graduate School, please email Diane Houser
with the following information:
• the particulars of the trip (conference name; date; location; title or description of work being presented; list of CWU faculty co-presenters, if applicable)
• a statement specifying from where the primary on-campus funding is coming
• an attachment of some form of proof of presentation (usually the acceptance email or copy of the agenda showing name and date/time of presentation)
Please do not send links to websites for programs or agendas; attach in pdf format
only that portion of the agenda showing the applicant’s presentation information and the cover page showing the conference/venue details. Once Diane has received this information she will reply by email with a commitment of funds and further instructions for preparation of the Travel Authorization Form and/or Travel Expense Report.
