Conference Travel Fund

To donate, visit Boise State Giving

Enter Fund ID: GR087

The Graduate College provides academic conference travel funding to graduate students for presentations at domestic and international academic conferences (including performances, exhibitions, readings, and lecture recitals for graduate students in the arts). The presentation experience that the graduate students gain from academic conferences makes them more competitive on the job market, and better prepares them for their future careers. The travel funding opportunities, which are awarded three per year, helps to supplement the funding that is provided by their home departments and programs.

The Graduate Student Emergency Fund provides financial assistance to Boise State University graduate students who are in danger from withdrawing due to unanticipated, temporary financial hardships resulting from emergency or crisis situations (e.g., accident, illness, death of a family member). Graduate students can face unique challenges to finishing their degrees and these funds are awarded as grants to help alleviate short-term financial needs.

The Three Minute Thesis (3MT) Competition takes place on campus each April and celebrates the exciting research conducted by graduate students. Participants have just three minutes and one slide to present compelling oration on their thesis or dissertation topic and its significance. The competition cultivates student’s academic, presentation, and research communication skills, and helps graduate students to effectively explain their research in a language appropriate to a non-specialist audience.
