Conference Funding

In light of the prohibitive cost of conferences, individuals who are ineligible for financial support from the Graduate School of Brown University may request conference funding from the GSC. The individual requesting money from the GSC must be a currently enrolled graduate student and must not be receiving external funding for the conference. Individuals may make one funding request per school year for up to $200. Applicants may only request funding for prospective conferences.

Requests for funding must be submitted to gsc_treasurer@brown.edu. The grant request  shall include:

  • Amount of money requested
  • Description of conference and how your participation advances your education at Brown
  • A complete budget

If the funding request is approved, the individual shall submit a “Travel Expense Report” to the Vice-President Treasurer of Administration with appropriate documentation for expenses for reimbursement.
