2013-2014 Conference Scholarship Program

Purpose: The purpose of the Residential Services Conference Scholarship Program is to provide support for academic pursuits to selected TC on-campus residents and allow them an opportunity to share their research endeavors and interests with other members of the Teachers College residential community.


Overview: The Office of Residential Services is awarding scholarships in the amount of $100.00 to three residents who successfully develop and design a program that is directly or indirectly related to their primary field of study. Each recipient must present their program to the Teachers College residential community. Participants are required to properly advertise for their event (a minimum of five days in advance) and are also responsible for securing a location for their presentation/program. Additional funds will be made available for snacks and refreshments.



  •  Participants must be full time Teachers College students currently residing in on-campus housing (CA staff and affiliates are ineligible).
  • Participants must attend a professional conference (of their choice) at some point during the 2013-2014 academic year.
  •  Funds must be used to off set conference costs, with few exceptions (Participants may not be reimbursed for food and beverage costs). Programs must be presented to members of the residential community prior to or after the selected conference. The presentation of the three selected programs must occur before the winners can submit receipts for reimbursement. Presentations MUST be completed by Thursday, May 1st.
  • The program or paper does not have to be accepted at a conference, however, the conference of choice should be one that is related to the participant’s field of study and their academic interests and endeavors.
