Conference Funding

Thinking about attending a conference? Apply for Student Council Conference Funding!

Conference Funding Info

The Student Council endeavors to support the needs of the student body by providing opportunities to apply for financial support when attending or presenting at professional conferences both domestically and abroad. The financial support can help partially cover the cost of conference registration, travel, and lodging. Conference Funding awards are reimbursement only.

In order to qualify for funding you must be:

  • Enrolled in a degree seeking program at the Monterey Institute of International Studies
  • Alumni and recent graduates are not eligible

Students applying for funding must read and agree to the terms outlined in the Conference Funding FAQ. Funds are awarded only when the Conference Funding Committee has received:

  • All relevant receipts
  • A deliverable which can be either a blog post for the Student Council Blog about your experience or a podcast for the MIISRadio

You may submit an application prior to attending a conference for pre-approval. You will not be awarded funding until all receipts and deliverable have been submitted.

Students may apply for Conference Funding during the full academic year up to 4pm on April 30th. Please note that Conference Funding is awarded until funds are depleted and applications are reviewed on a rolling basis.
