About This Grant
Conference Travel Awards fund Northwestern University undergraduate students enrolled in the Communication Studies Digital Media Module to attend an academic or professional conference in their field.
Typically, the maximum award is $400, and students are limited to one conference travel award per academic year. If there are extenuating circumstances students believe might merit a higher award, they may request additional funds.
Though any students within the Communication Studies Digital Media Module may apply, preference will be given to those attending a conference to present their work.
Undergraduate students traveling to any international location, by accepting this award, explicitly agree to follow all health and safety requirements as outlined by the Office of Global Safety and Security for the destination location(s).
Open to all Northwestern University undergraduate students enrolled in the Communication Studies Digital Media Module. Applicants must be presenting at or attending an academic or professional conference in their field.
