Spring 2019 Newcomb Student Grants - Conference Presentation/Attendance (out of cycle request)
Who Can Apply: Full-time, undergraduate Tulane University students (including those enrolled in 4+1 programs) are eligible to apply for funding from the Newcomb College Institute.
Grant proposals may be submitted to the Newcomb Grant Review Committee during either of these cycles:
Fall cycle – Submission deadline of October 15, 2018.
Spring cycle – Submission deadline of March 15, 2019.
Grants will be reviewed by the Grant Review Committee after the March deadline. If you need your grant request reviewed before then, please email firstname.lastname@example.org to request out-of-cycle review.
Grant recipients must credit the Newcomb College Institute in papers, presentations, or publicity connected with the funded project.
Application Guidelines for Conference Grants:
These grants will fund travel expenses for undergraduate students who present papers, participate in a panel, or attend professional academic meetings. Students may apply for funding after the paper has been submitted but before acceptance, and funding may be conditional upon acceptance of the paper. Applicant should indicate if s/he will attend the conference regardless of acceptance of paper. Students must complete such travel prior to graduating from Tulane University. Preference is given to presenters or panel participants over conference attendees, and proof of submission or acceptance must be included with the proposal. If attending and not presenting, the applicant must describe how attendance at the conference is important to his/her academic work. Proposals for conference attendance, as opposed to conference participation, may be only partially funded.
Any student requesting funding for travel to non-academic meetings/competitions must show a close connection to the student's academic study and should discuss the coursework s/he has taken that prepares him/her for this event. Students must also provide an unofficial transcript with this type of proposal.
Applications for conference presentation may be accepted and considered outside of the regular grant cycle.
