The Drs. Walter Colston (Pete) Howell & Helene J. Polatajko-Howell Student Conference Presentation Fund is intended to defray travel costs for Occupational Science & Occupational Therapy students, at the University of Toronto, who are presenting their work at a peer-reviewed national or international conference. This includes the annual Canadian Association of Occupational Therapists’ (CAOT) annual conference.
The amount granted per student is $100.
Applications are to be submitted to the Program Manager in the OS&OT office. Please include the following in your submission:
- A brief letter (max 150 words) stating your project title, description, project partner name, and the name of your supervisor.
- A travel budget, itemizing the individual costs you incurring for your conference travel, including registration fees.
- Indicate whether you have received other forms of financial support received to attend the conference, such as support from your supervisor.
- Indicate whether you have applied for the SGS Conference Grant
You and your project partner must each submit a separate application (i.e. do not submit a joint application). If your partner does not intend to apply for the award, you may still apply individually.
Deadline for submissions is early April annually (date TBD).
