Presentation Fellowship

The Presentation Fellowship is a great opportunity for students who plan to present a research paper or comparable creative activity at a professional conference. This fellowship provides funding for enrolled master's, specialist, and doctoral students to share their research at a professional meeting. Students must be the primary author and presenter. 

Requirements

  • Only enrolled graduate students (master's, specialist, doctoral) in good academic standing are eligible. The Graduate Presentation Fellowship Program is primarily intended for full-time graduate students, but part-time students may also apply. Students must be enrolled during the term of the travel.
  • Only one application per student may be funded for a 12-month period (fiscal year July 1-June 30).
  • The student must be delivering a research presentation or comparable creative activity at a professional meeting, with preference being given to those presenting at national and international meetings. Students must be the primary student author and presenter.
  • For a presentation co-authored by two or more students, funding will be provided to only one student author.
  • Within 5 days of your return, submit the Presentation Fellowship Report (currently named "Graduate Travel Expense Report" in the myUCF Student Center) to the College of Graduate Studies, including proof of presentation.
