Travel Grants

We are proud to offer Travel Grants to all attendees of CUPC 2017. These will be distributed on a case-by-case basis after the conference has taken place. Travel Grants will be prioritized to students based on distance, university funding, and travel costs. To apply for a Travel Grant, stay tuned for our sign up Google Form! The application period will be between October 25th and November 5th.

This year, we are very excited to announce a special travel fund established by one of our sponsors, the Canadian Institute for Nuclear Physics, in partnership with the Canadian Association of Physicists, for students presenting research in Nuclear Physics. The deadline to apply to this fund is September 29th. Full information can be found at
