ABC Student Travel Grants

The Association for Business Communication is pleased to announce the availability of several $400 Student Travel Grants to support graduate and undergraduate students who will deliver a presentation at its Annual International Conference.

Eligible applicants must meet these criteria:

  • Be new or current ABC members.
  • Be enrolled in a graduate or undergraduate program at the time of the conference.
  • Have submitted a proposal to present at the conference.
  • Not be employed in a full-time academic or professional position.

Grants will be awarded based on both merit and need, with preference given to first-time attendees. In addition, grant recipients must have their proposal to present at the conference accepted, and they must attend and present onsite at the conference. Recipients will be recognized during the conference's Awards Luncheon with funding distributed electronically after the conference concludes.

The Student Travel Grant application can be found here. (link pending) Please complete and submit the application no later than May 31, 2024.

Please direct any questions about the Student Travel Grants to Matt Baker.

 Regional Opportunity

New!  Through the end of 2024, Student Travel Grants will also be available to graduate and undergraduate students whose proposal has been accepted to an ABC regional conference. This new initiative is being piloted to provide students greater access to ABC events and additional opportunities to present their research to a wider professional audience. The same eligibility criteria for a Student Travel Grant to an annual conference will be applied to an ABC regional conference.
