The Graduate School makes awards to support the professional development of its students.
Professional Development Awards provide support for students to attend major professional meetings at which they present an original paper based on their research.
Students offered a fellowship who are still deciding whether to attend the university may be eligible to receive a campus visit award to help offset the cost of visiting the Forty Acres.
Open to any UT Austin student studying or conducting research abroad. Award amounts approximately $1200 - $1800. Number of students awarded varies. Application will be available March 1, 2022.
The purpose of this award is to support graduate students—whose work promotes diversity, equity, and inclusion in various fields—present at scholarly recognized conferences, professional meetings, or trainings.
