Funding For Conference Travel

Research endeavors can benefit society in meaningful ways, so communicating the results of scientific study is essential. Conferences are a key venue for the dissemination of new scientific findings. We encourage undergraduates who have conducted independent research through one of our UROPs to participate in a conference setting.

Many Faculty of Science students attend one of the annual Science Atlantic conferences held specifically for undergraduates in the Maritime provinces. Some may even accompany their faculty supervisors to regional or national conferences in their area of study.  

The Faculty of Science provides financial support for some undergraduate students to attend and present their research at undergraduate research conferences. The application form may be downloaded here.
