Request for Funding

The College of Agriculture is pleased to offer funding for individual undergraduate and graduate students in the College as they participate in scholarly conferences. Students must be presenting their scholarly work (i.e. creative work, educational reporting, research paper and/or poster) at the conference. Individuals may apply for funding prior to final confirmation that their scholarly work has been approved for conference inclusion. However, funds will not be disbursed for non-presenters. Students must be registered at MSU at the time of the conference in order to be reimbursed. Students may request funds for in-person attendance or virtual attendance.
