Individual DSPH undergraduate and master’s students may request funding from Student Affairs for conference and professional development travel by completing the Professional Development/Conference Travel Award Request form. Doctoral students are not eligible for this award.
The intention of the Professional Development/Conference Travel Award is to provide supplemental funding for the following types of expenses: rail, shuttle, or air transportation, conference and registration fees, and/or hotel expenses. Requests for auto-rental, mileage, tolls, parking, ride sharing or taxi services, and/or meal funding are not eligible.
Please complete the funding request form and describe your professional development or conference opportunity. You will be asked to provide the following information: a brief rationale for your request, an estimated budget, and to share photos and a review upon the conclusion of the event. This information may be shared on the School’s website, Facebook page, or in reports to the upper administration. We will process reimbursements after we receive your materials.
Funding requests must be submitted at least four weeks in advance. The maximum level of support that Student Affairs provides is $200. Please note that funding is limited and is not guaranteed, so applicants should consider alternative sources of funding.
