Travel and Conference Funding From Tulane University

Provost Office Educational Travel Funds

The Provost’s Office provides graduate and professional students up to $500 for travel to present a paper or poster at a conference. For more information, see Tulane's Office of Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies (OGPS) site.

Preference will be given to applicants who have been accepted to present a paper, but those presenting posters, or participating as a discussant at a conference, biennale or arts festival may also apply. All graduate and professional students are welcome to apply, though preference will be given to students pursuing terminal degrees in their field. It is anticipated that approximately five awards will be made each term (Spring, Summer and Fall). Be sure to plan ahead as requests for funds must be received before travel is initiated according to the application deadlines below. An application may be submitted by the appropriate deadline pending receipt of an official notification of acceptance to present. A conditional award can be made contingent upon a notification of paper/poster acceptance. If the abstract is not accepted,the award will be withdrawn. Applications will be accepted three times per year*:

  • December 1 for travel in the Spring semester (January through May)
  • May 1 for travel in the summer (June through September)
  • September 1 for travel in the Fall semester (October – December)

* Deadlines are subject to change; please check Tulane's Office of Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies (OGPS) site listed above.

Tulane School of Social Work and DRLA Educational Travel Funds

Partial funds can be provided to MSW and MS-DRL students for travel related to conferences and training opportunities. Two sources are available: The DRLA and the TSSW Student Government Association (SGA). The SGA has a limit of $250 per year for each student, while the DRLA awards up to $100 per semester (In special circumstances, the amount awarded by the DRLA may increase). However, the student is expected to show partial responsibility for all requests.
