To encourage our graduate students to take the next step and present work at outside professional conferences, St. John’s has made available up to $500 per student to support this kind of travel. To receive this funding, students must have a paper accepted for presentation at the conference. You should present documentation of that acceptance to Dr. Sicari in the English Department, and then you’ll need to fill out a preapproval form beforehand and a Travel and Expenses form, with receipts, after the trip. It usually takes a week or so to get the reimbursement issued.
Here’s the intranet link to the T&E form you’ll need to use. You can also contact Dr Sicari directly.
