Graduate Conference Awards


French Conference Travel Award

 

AIM: These awards are designed to enable current graduate students majoring in French with an active assistantship in the Department of Modern Languages and Linguistics to present papers at national, regional or international conferences, or to attend the MLA for job interviews.

In certain fields such as linguistics, applications in support of poster presentations at highly visible national or international conferences, will be considered where the applicant can show that the presentation has been accepted after peer review and will receive significant exposure during the conference.

  • Applications must be made for travel in the current or next semester, except in the case of attendance at the MLA for job interviews, after which funding may be requested the following February.
  • Awards cannot be taken up after graduation from FSU or in the semester in which the applicant expects to graduate.
  • Awards will not be granted for study on programs which FSU prohibits or discourages its students from attending, e.g. on the grounds of U.S. State Department travel warnings; awards may be withdrawn at any time on the grounds of revised FSU advice or prohibition.
  • Awards are subject to the availability of funding.
  • Decisions are final.

APPLICATIONS DEADLINES:
November 1, 2019: Fall Conference Travel
March 1, 2020: Spring and Summer Conference Travel Application

  • Applications may be made while awaiting acceptance of a conference paper proposal; if funding is awarded, this will be conditional upon receipt of documentation showing acceptance of your paper for inclusion in the conference program.
  • All sections of this form must be completed.
  • Late or incomplete applications will not be considered for funding.

AWARD AMOUNTS:

  • The grant awards will be no more than $600 for regional, national conferences or attendance at the MLA for job interviews and no more than $800 for international conferences.
