The Department of Religious Studies and the College of Humanities and Public Affairs encourage students to share their research by attending conferences in the field of religious studies, submitting papers, serving on panels, and otherwise connecting with the wider religious studies community. Funding is sometimes available from the Religious Studies department to facilitate conference participation for undergraduate and graduate Religious Studies students: contact Jane Terry for information. If you are a graduate student in Religious Studies, visit Funding for Conference Presentations by REL Graduate Students for more information on graduate student conference funding.
