Professional Development Funding

What is "professional development" funding?

The Professional Development Fund was created to "fund professional development activities for individual undergraduate mathematics students". 

This includes funding for:

  • publication fees;
  • conference accommodation, travel, and registration; and
  • other initiatives that benefit the career of an individual student

Funding can only be granted up to $750 per project by default. 

Note that in practice applicants will be expected to pay at least some amount of the costs. 

How to receive professional development funding:

The first step is to submit a Professional Development Funding form (pdf) to the executive director

The executive director will then evaluate the project and the funding available for the term and make a funding decision. 

There are no deadlines to apply for professional development funding; however, retro-active funding will usually be rejected.
