The Undergraduate Conference Fund is a way for SGB to award grants of up to $250 to support undergraduate non-CGS students who are invited to present their research at a conference.
To qualify for the program, the applicant must:
- Be an undergraduate non-CGS University of Pittsburgh – Pittsburgh Campus student.
- Have been invited to present his or her research at a conference.
- Not have received an SGB Conference Grant within the fiscal year, or have been awarded more than two SGB Conference Grants within their tenure at the University of Pittsburgh
Though approval is required before the conference, all funds shall be reimbursed after attending the conference. The applicant shall submit a reimbursement form to the SORC office (833 WPU) within 30 days of the end of the conference.
Please note that funds shall only be granted for registration, lodging, and transportation. They may not be used for first-class airfare or meals and preference will be given to those who do not have alternative sources of funding (though having other funding sources in no way disqualifies you from applying).
If you have any questions, please contact the Vice President of Operations Sarah Siddiqui at firstname.lastname@example.org.
