Science Conference Presentation Grants for Undergraduate Researchers
Are you a Harvard College undergraduate who will be presenting your research at a scientific conference?
If so, consider applying for a Science Conference Presentation Grant! FAS Science Education is pleased to announce this competitive program. An undergraduate who is the first and primary presenting author of a poster or oral presentation at a domestic or international scientific conference is eligible to apply. Acceptance of an abstract at a conference does not guarantee funding or full funding. Students are highly encouraged to apply to additional sources of funding, such as through the Harvard College Research Program.
Spring 2020: We regret that our annual funding for conference presentation grants has been exhausted.
We hope to re-open the program in Fall 2020. Please reach out to your laboratory PI, and explore opportunities at the URAF office.
Questions can be directed to Dr. Logan McCarty, Associate Director of Science Education.
