Conference Grants

The Department strongly encourages students to attend professional conferences.

The Department of Statistics also contributes up to $400 to students’ travel during their entire student career at Northwestern. To apply for a department grant students must submit a Department Conference Travel Grant Application to the DGS at least 30 days prior to the first date of travel.

Students typically apply for both a Department Travel Grant and a TGS Conference Travel Grant.

The Department Assistant will assist you with the reimbursement process.
