The Faculty of Social Sciences recognizes the importance that a variety of academic experiences play in the lives of students. For this reason, the Faculty created the Scholarly Conference Presentation Travel Award for Students.
Students enrolled full-time in a Faculty of Social Sciences undergraduate or graduate degree program are eligible to apply for funding to support travel to a conference at which they will present their research.
A student may receive an award only once during his/her program and no more than one award will be made to a given program in each competition. This competition is run three times a year.
