Conference Travel

Conference travel

Awardees may request funding to support travel to conferences where they are scheduled to present their research findings or creative activity during the 2019-2020 academic year. This research or creative activity must be the work of a graduate student advised by a faculty member at IU; it cannot be collaborative between faculty and the awardee.

Awardees will be required to write a report about their research or creative activity for the Asian American Studies newsletter and present their research or creative activity at the annual AAST symposium the following year.


Submissions seeking funding for conference travel should include:

  1. cover letter
  2. curriculum vitae
  3. title and abstract of presentation
  4. conference information (include name, date, and location of the conference, name of the conference organizer, and panel or poster session details)
  5. copy of acceptance notification from conference organizer
  6. detailed budget

Application deadline

Please submit all materials to by the spring semester deadline. Applications submitted past the deadline will not be accepted. Funds will be deposited to your bursar account.
