Please use the following guidelines to determine whether or not the conference you plan to attend would be considered a “professional conference.” If you feel that your conference does not meet these criteria but is still a “professional” conference for some reason, please firstname.lastname@example.org.

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.). There are three options for student travel funding:
Option 1: Up to $250* 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 $500* may be awarded for the following activities:
Option 3: Up to $750* may be awarded for travel expenses when studying in programs, organizations, and institutes beyond the KU campus leading to professional development in the arts. This component of the fund is highly competitive with a limited number of awards made each year. Travel for study might include:
* Depends on available funding
Please Note: Students receiving funding for travel through the School of the Arts Student Travel Fund are required to submit a report of their travel within two weeks of their return. A form will be sent to students with their award notification. Students who fail to submit a report will not be eligible for future support from the SOTA Student Travel Fund.FundingReport
