Graduate Travel Awards
The department’s Mabel Jensen Fund provides funding to support graduate students who: (a) plan to present a research paper at a professional conference, workshop, etc., or (b) plan to attend an annual meeting of the American Academy of Religion or a comparable professional meeting for the specific purpose of consulting with faculty in prospective Ph.D. programs. Students must submit a Graduate Student Travel Award Application, below, to be considered. APPLICATIONS MUST BE SUBMITTED BEFORE YOU TRAVEL.
Applications are accepted on a rolling basis. Funding will be determined on the basis of seniority of applicants, funding available, and the projected number of applicants. The funds will be disbursed after the event.
Limited funding may also be available to support graduate student research. Please email Director of Graduate Studies Dr. Molly Zahn for more information.If you are applying for travel money from the Department of Religious Studies, you should also apply for financial support through the KU Office of Graduate Studies. Additional financial support for conference attendance is available to graduate students through the Graduate Scholarly Presentation Travel Fund administered by that office.
