Undergraduate Academic Conference Grant Funding

This opportunity is granted to Undergraduate Students at UNC to help provide support for attending Academic Conferences during the year. Students are encouraged to apply closest to their conference date. Students may submit, for a small penalty, an application for a conference held previously in the academic year in which the application is filed. 

Students are able to receive a maximum of $550 for the Spring/Fall Semester and a maximum of $900 per Academic Year. The conference grant process works through reimbursement. You must first attend a conference and show all original receipts to the business office (located in the UC) to receive any funding. Applying does not guarantee full funding. Depending upon how many applications are received, will determine the percentage of amount to be given.

If you have any questions please reach out to Teresa Castro
