Conference Attendance

Due to COVID-19, the Mini-Grants program is suspended until the fall and is not currently accepting applications. Check back here in the fall for updates deadlines and to apply for funding for the 2020-2021 academic year.

The Rockefeller Center can fund up to $300 to cover conference registration fees (not travel expenses) for Dartmouth undergraduate students. Consideration is given for conferences that enhance a student’s academic knowledge, leadership development, or campus impact. Students can only apply once a year for funding.

Application Information

Application deadlines occur every two weeks with a decision made by the dates indicated below. Applications must be received prior to the conference. Out of fairness to the applicant pool, applications will not be granted expedited consideration in the case of missed deadlines.  Applications for a conference received from multiple members of a student group will be considered individually and will be granted funding on the basis of their own merit.  Approved funding is distributed after the conference takes place and all post event requirements have been submitted.
