Frequently Asked Questions

Can I apply for a conference/travel grant if I already graduated?

No, you can only apply if you are a student currently attending University of North Georgia.

Do I receive $500 if I win?

No, you can receive up to $500. The awarded amounts vary depending on application and will be determined by the CURCA office.

Should I estimate on the lower end for my cost?

No, please estimate accurately the amount if you can. That helps us when deciding how much to reward.

Will requesting above $500 disqualify me or hurt my chances?

No, please accurately estimate your costs whatever they may be and we will decide how much we can award from there.

How do I know if my conference is local, state, regional or national?

You should talk to your faculty advisor or the conference organizations prior to applying to clarify the level of conference.

What if I haven’t been accepted yet to my conference?

You can submit a statement for an expected acceptance date with your application. It’s ok if you haven’t gotten your acceptance yet as long as you include that statement.

Can I submit more than one application for conference/travel grants?

Yes you can submit more than one if you are attending multiple conferences. There is no guarantee both conference/travel grants will be awarded but it doesn’t hurt your chances to do so.
