Carroll University encourages and supports students' presentation of their work at academic conferences. Celebrate Carroll: The University's Academic Conference provides an opportunity for students to present results of their work (oral presentations, posters, art exhibits, theatre performances, literary readings) on campus every spring.
The Scholarly Travel Grant Program allows undergraduate and graduate students to take their work into the professional realm off campus by providing financial support for travel expenses and conference fees. At scholarly conferences, Carroll students not only share their work with others in their fields, but also learn about the work of students and professional academics. Presenting at scholarly conferences also provides Carroll students with excellent professional networking opportunities.
On these pages, you will find information on the three rounds of calls for applications for Scholarly Travel Grants throughout the year. These rounds coordinate with the timing of academic conferences.
You will also find information on academic conferences targeted specifically at undergraduates, as well as information on academic journals that specialize in publishing work by undergraduate students. We encourage Carroll University students to work with faculty members to revise the work they do for classes and/or capstones and to get it ready for presentation and publication.
