CECP Student Travel/ Conference Support

The Department of Counselor Education and Counseling Psychology (CECP) has limited funds available to support student attendance at conferences. Preference will be given to students who are presenting at the conference (e.g., a poster, panel, workshop, or invited talk). Both master’s and doctoral students are invited to apply.

Before applying for CECP travel funds, students are required to apply for a Graduate Student Research Travel Award. Because funds are limited, award amounts may cover only a percentage of total conference costs.

Documentation of the acceptance of your presentation by the conference organizers will be required before funds are released. Students are also required to submit the relevant receipts as documentation of expenses accrued. Should you be awarded funds but then be unable to attend the conference, you will be required to return the funds to the department. Yearly application deadlines are October 1 and April 1.

Selection criteria and process:

The scholarships and awards committee will conduct an initial review of applications and make award recommendations, which will be sent to the faculty for approval. Awards will be prioritized for students who are presenting and for those presentations that fulfill the requirement for the PDQE. Students may receive up to two awards per year. If the amount(s) requested exceed(s) the total funds available, partial awards may be given.
