Conference Bursary

The UTGSU Conference Bursary was created in 2016 to assist students with financial expenses that arise from attending and/or presenting at academic conferences. The amount of a single bursary is $250, regardless of conference location or estimated expenses.

Please note that the UTGSU Finance Committee is currently investigating changes to the UTGSU Conference Bursary. Applications for the 2018 Fall Conference Bursary cycle will open on November 1st, 2018. Additional details will be made available in late October prior to the opening of the application cycle.

Please note that you must be a UTGSU Member at the time of application for your application to be deemed eligible. Applications will only be accepted for conferences yet to be attended, not for conferences already attended. Also, lost cheques are not able to be replaced by the UTGSU.
