Conference Support for EAD Students

Students who have had papers accepted at conferences, or who have been nominated and selected for special Graduate Student Seminars, which some of the associations hold, are eligible to apply for financial support for travel and conference related expenses. In most cases, doctoral students presenting papers will receive up to $400. MA students are eligible for support up to $200. Exact amount of support will depend on the level of expenses associated with a particular conference (e.g., distance to travel, length, etc.). A student should expect to receive only one allocation of $400 per year.

To apply for department support, please complete the EAD Conference Support Application and submit the printed or e-mail attachment to Marilyn Amey, Professor and Chairperson, Department of Educational Administration, Rm. 418 Erickson Hall. (amey@msu.edu)
