Conference Travel Funding

Graduate Students

Department funds (up to $700 per graduate student per academic year) are available to partially fund graduate students for trips to conferences at which they are presenting. In order to receive the full $700 support, you must present a paper or poster that has been accepted in a conference with the highest professorial or professional peer review standards accepted by the discipline.

To apply for this funding, you must first fill out a travel request form, which you can get from the department office (4068 JFSB). You should submit this form (along with a copy of your presentation acceptance letter or e-mail) well in advance of your conference trip so that funds can be apportioned and reserved appropriately.

The College of Humanities also offers funding for graduate students (up to $500) to travel to conferences when they are presenting. The college funding request forms are included in the department travel request form. Please contact the department secretary for further information. Additional Professional Presentation Awards are available twice a year from Graduate Studies. For more detailed information, go to gradstudies.byu.edu.

Undergraduate Students

Undergraduate students who are presenting co-authored papers along with a Linguistics Department faculty member may apply for travel funding from the department. To apply for this funding, you must first fill out a travel request form, which you can get from the department office (4064 JFSB). You should submit this form (along with a copy of your presentation acceptance letter or e-mail) well in advance of your conference trip so that funds can be apportioned and reserved appropriately.
