  • Conference Travel
    Each academic year, the School of Humanities receives limited funding from the Graduate Division to support graduate students who present their research/paper at an academic meeting conference. A call for applications is emailed twice a year (fall and spring quarters) to Humanities PhD students. Students may apply to this program to help defray expenses related to their conference travel. Not all applicants are guaranteed due to limited funding. If awarded, awards are processed as travel reimbursements and documentation submitted for reimbursement must adhere to UCI travel policy. Please review this Travel Reimbursement form as a reference for the type of documentation that is required and the commonly asked questions regarding reimbursements.
    • Fall Quarter call will be in October for conference travel between July 1 through December 31 
    • Spring Quarter call will be in April for conference travel between December 1 through June 30
    • Award Amount: $300 to $1,000
    • Students are limited to a career maximum of $2,000 and may only receive an award once per academic year.
