There are a number of awards that are available for graduate students who are presenting at conferences. Awarding of funds is dependent upon funds available. Since the amount of award money is limited, the earlier the student applies for funds (as soon as their abstract is accepted) the more likely they will receive the award. The award may not cover all of the expenses requested in the application.
