When appropriate, the Kellogg School provides funding for students to attend conferences through each student's academic program. Please contact your PhD coordinator if a conference opportunity becomes available to you or you have an interest in attending a particular conference due to the research focus and professional development opportunities.
For those students who have been asked to present a paper at a conference or at another research institution/university, the Graduate School provides funding matched by the student’s department through a Conference Travel Grant. Please note: The student must be making a presentation on behalf of Northwestern University, so just “attending” a conference would not qualify you for this type of funding.
Students must present a budget with their application to the Graduate School and the amount to be provided by the department. The maximum amount matched by the Graduate School is $700; so possibly $1,400 in funding could be provided if the travel budget allows. Students are eligible for a maximum of two grants, up to $700 each, over the entire course of their graduate career.
