Funding Opportunities

Conference/Symposium Fund

As a result of the COVID-19 travel ban of unknown duration, all travel award competitions are suspended effective March 18, 2020 and will resume once travel bans are lifted.

The Conference/Symposium Fund supports international, national, and provincial conferences/symposiums that contribute to scholarship and are sponsored or hosted by the University within Alberta. The funding for the Conference Fund is provided by the Office of the Vice-President (Research) and is administered by the Office of Research, Faculty of Medicine & Dentistry.

To ensure maximum use and distribution of the limited University of Alberta funds available, applicants are expected to seek other sources of support in addition to applying to this fund.
