2. Student Conference Funding:

UWSA Conference funding aims to support students needing funding to bear a part of the expenses for attending conferences relevant to their academic studies and research at the University of Winnipeg. These funds are available for both undergraduate and graduate students. The funds can be used towards the cost of travel, accommodation, or other costs associated with attending an academic conference, a field course, practicums, or academic activities.
