Presenting at Academic Conferences
The Graduate School supports our graduate students' professional growth with services, resources, and funding that will prepare you, and afford you the opportunity, to present your research at professional academic conferences both domestic and abroad. Follow the steps outlined below to effectively represent yourself and UTSA at your next academic conference presentation.
- Improve your Presentation Skills: Your presentation should be excellent both in delivery and development. The Graduate School provides online resources to take your presentation skills to the next level:
- Apply for Travel Funding: If you are selected to present your research at a conference, consider applying for a Graduate Student Professional Development Award. This travel award is available for students who are selected to present their research in the form of a poster presentation, round-table session, panel discussion, or plenary (oral) presentation. For more information and to download the required application, visit the Graduate Student Professional Development Award page.
- Branding your Presentation: As a representative of UTSA, you are required to utilize a University approved PowerPoint template and logos for any conference presentation given by you while you are a graduate student at UTSA. If you would like the official UTSA PowerPoint template or UTSA approved logo(s) emailed to you, send your request to firstname.lastname@example.org.
