FHSD Graduate Student Virtual Conference Award

The Faculty of Health & Social Development’s internal Graduate Student Virtual Conference Award is intended to support student scholarly and professional activities. Given current travel restrictions due to the pandemic, applications will be considered from graduate students in Master’s (thesis-based or course-based) or Doctoral programs to cover registration fees to attend virtual conferences related to their field of study. In order to be eligible, students must present scholarly work (e.g., a presentation, poster, workshop) based on research or scholarly/project work conducted while a student at UBCO.
