There are two Math Department funds for graduate students traveling to conferences: Yorke Graduate Support Fund and Joel Cohen Travel Fund. Each fund can only be used once a year. The Yorke Graduate Student Support Fund covers expenses for up to 800 dollars. The two funds cannot be combined.
Both funds are available to students giving a talk or presenting a poster, or is available to students who have some additional funding from other sources (advisor, conference organizers, etc.).
The printing of posters can be covered by the department as a separate expense.
In addition, there is the University Goldhaber Fund which provides matching funds for students presenting posters or giving talks.
Students planning to travel to conferences should see the Associate Chair for Graduate Studies for preliminary approval, and then fill out a travel form at least two weeks before the departure day, listing the graduate chair as their PI.
