EAP Professional Development/Travel Grants

Limited funding is available to support current EAP students’ attendance and travel to professional development events such as conferences, workshops, and seminars. Priority for EAP’s professional development and travel grants is given to students who have not previously received a grant, demonstrate past engagement with the EAP community, and provide a strong justification for how the program will benefit not only the student but the EAP program as well.

Funding is available in two categories:

  • Professional Development Grant: Students may request up to $100 to cover registration fees for a conference, workshop, seminar, or other event that enhances a student’s professional development. This event can be a local event or outside of Madison.
  • Travel Grant: Students may request up to $500 to cover travel costs to a professional development event outside of Madison.

The grants can be combined for up to $600 in total student support per award. Use the button below to apply for a grant from EAP. Applications will be reviewed by a committee of EAP faculty and staff.

Apply for a Grant

Students who receive an award from this fund can only apply for another award after six months have passed. An exception to this rule is made for students whose awards are less than the maximum award in each category ($100 for professional development, $500 for travel). In this case, students may request another award for the difference between their previous request and the maximum in each category.

The EAP program is part of the Nelson Institute for Environmental Studies, partnered with the Wisconsin Energy Institute
