Dean's Conference Fund


The Dean’s Conference Fund was established to provide support for any enrolled Gallatin student who wishes to attend or present at a professional conference. Awards range from $250 to $750 and can be used to defray travel expenses or pay conference registration fees, etc. Awards are made on a reimbursement basis—students must submit proof of expenditures to receive reimbursement. Applications are accepted on a rolling basis.

Students must apply and be approved for a conference grant before the start of the conference. A student may receive funding for only one conference per academic year.


Enrolled Gallatin undergraduate and graduate students may apply.


Applications are received on a rolling basis.
