Conference Grants 

The Chaplain's Office awards grants of up to $200 for students to attend conferences centered on faith or spirituality. Conference Grants are awarded on a rolling basis throughout the academic year. Conference Grant applications are due one month prior to the start date of the conference. Since funds are limited, these grants are awarded on a first-come, first-served basis until available funds are exhausted. Ordinarily, no student will be awarded more than one Conference Grant in a single academic year. (However, receipt of a Conference Grant does not preclude a student from receiving other types of grants available from the Office of the Chaplain.)
