The University of Kansas School of the Arts provides travel funds to support the professional development of its students and to increase the visibility of its academic programs. Applicants should note that funding priority will be given to students who were selected to participate in professional programs, conferences and events on the basis of a peer review of their work (portfolio, audition tape, written proposal, etc.). Applicants may only receive funding once per academic year (fall, spring, summer). There are three options for student travel funding:
Option 1: Up to $2501 may be awarded to students who attend regional or national professional conferences directly related to their area of study. Students attending conferences as a group must still apply to Student Travel Fund individually.
Option 2: Up to $5001 may be awarded for the following activities:
- 1. Support for students to participate in regional, national or international conferences where they are performing or presenting papers, workshops, poster sessions, or other work.
- 2. Students invited to perform, present, or exhibit at other regional, national, or international venues related to their area of study.
- 3. Students attending a national conference when serving as elected officers of a related regional or national organization.
- 1. Travel within the United States to participate in master classes, workshops, or residencies as appropriate within the arts disciplines in the School of the Arts.
- 2. Travel outside the United States in study abroad programs lead by KU faculty.
Note: This fund does not cover participation in study programs such as internships or other travel activities undertaken as part of non-study abroad courses.
