To apply for the CSURM Fellowship, an applicant must first submit an online application to the GRC they wish to attend. Once the conference application is received, an acknowledgement will be sent that contains a link to the CSURM Fellowship application. Applicants who meet the above criteria are encouraged to apply for the Fellowship early. Support is limited and available on a first come-first served basis.
Please note: Final approval for a CSURM Fellowship is contingent upon acceptance to attend the conference by the Conference Chair. All applications to participate in a particular GRC are reviewed and acceptances are made independent of this Fellowship application. The information provided in the CSURM Fellowship application will not be shared with the Conference Chair and will not affect your application to participate in the Conference.
