In the event you need to contribute funding to attend a conference, seek out resources such as scholarships to help cover expenses. The follow is a select list of potential funding sources:

Conference-specific Funding Sources

Local Funding Sources

  • Cal Poly Humboldt College of Arts, Humanities & Social Sciences - Twice a year the CAHSS office send out calls for travel funding requests. The main call goes out in early September and is for travel occurring between November 1 and June 30. The other call is sent out in April with a deadline of mid May. This is an early call for funding requests for the following academic year (July 1-June 30).
