Travel Funding for Doctoral Students and Postdoctoral Fellows

February 15, 2024

The Vanier Institute of the Family provides conference funding to doctoral students and postdoctoral fellows to support participation in family science knowledge exchange.

We offer doctoral students and postdoctoral fellows up to $750 to present at conferences or attend workshops and courses. Research must be related to family diversities and wellbeing in Canada (for more information, see the Family Diversities and Wellbeing Framework). To encourage knowledge exchange among wider audiences, the event does not need to have a family-specific focus. Applicants must be presenting (e.g., presentation, poster, roundtable, breakout discussion facilitator, etc.) at the conference or participating in a workshop or course. Applicants are permitted to request additional funding exceeding $750 in exceptional circumstances but must outline the justification for the request in their application. Funds are to be applied to the cost of travel, accommodations, meals, and conference/workshop/course registrations. Please refer to the list of eligible and ineligible expenses.

What do I need to do to apply?

Complete the Travel Funding Application Form. Attach your conference acceptance and/or confirmation of payment in the online form to support your request.

When will I hear about the status of my application?

We will do our best to notify successful applicants within 10 business days of receipt of their application. A confirmation email from the Vanier Institute will be sent to you once the application has been received. If a confirmation notice has not been received within 2 business days of the submission, please email [email protected].
