Conference Grants

Printer-friendly version

The Faculty of Information Alumni Association (FIAA) offers grants to Master of Information (MI) and Master of Museum Studies (MMSt) students who:

  • Have been invited to a conference in order to present a paper or a poster session or participate as a speaker or a panelist OR
  • Are conducting a clearly defined research project, supervised by a Faculty member as part of their studies at the iSchool

Grants are to be used to subsidize the cost of attending the conference or to help defray research-related costs of conducting the research project. A committee of alumni volunteers will decide the grant amount awarded to each recipient, but no individual award will exceed $500. A student may receive only one grant during their program at the iSchool. Grant recipients will be acknowledged on the Faculty website.
