The Office of the Academic Dean supports the scholarly pursuits of Earlham students and faculty.
Student Scholarly Conference Travel Award
Students who have been accepted to present research at, or invited to actively participate in (e.g., give a keynote address, moderate sessions, etc.), scholarly conferences during each year (running from July 1 – June 30) can apply for funding to assist with travel costs from the Student Scholarly Conference Travel fund.
Travel funding awards may be for any amount up to a maximum of $750 dollars per student (for one or two students traveling to a specific conference) or will be for a total of $2,000 for three or more students to attend the same conference. These funds may only be used to help defray actual travel expenses. Students should apply as a group (if more than one student would like to attend the same conference) or individually if only one student would like to attend.
Available funding is limited and cannot be guaranteed to all applicants. Preference in funding will be given to students making formal academic presentations, although requests to support other kinds of scholarly participation will be considered. Funds will also be prioritized for students who have not yet received this support from Earlham.
Note that applications must include answers to all questions, as well as a detailed budget based on the form available through the application form.
To apply, students should fill out the Application Form.
