Students whose summer course or program ends prior to the date of the conference are eligible to apply for a travel stipend of up to $150 to defray the cost of travel back to campus for the conference. Students who are currently living in the five boroughs are not eligible for this stipend. This stipend may be used for travel only (not lodging, food, etc.). Students will pay for travel expenses and be reimbursed up to $150.
Applications for both the Summer Conference (Individual, Group) and the Travel Stipend will only be accepted online.
Additional Opportunity for Participants
Students who have participated in the Summer Conference are invited and encouraged to return to NYU the following spring to participate in the Annual Dean's Undergraduate Research Conference. We hope students will return to NYU for this academic experience that will help students maintain connections to both NYU as well as a broader academic community of their peers.
Please visit the Annual Dean's Undergraduate Research Conference website for more information.
This summer student conference was created by the NYU FAS Diversity Initiative and is made possible by the Office of the Vice Provost for Faculty, Arts, Humanities, and Diversity. These organizations seek to build a stronger and increasingly more diverse community for all members of New York University.
