College of Arts and Sciences Support
Student Research Travel Support
The Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences offers up to $500 per academic year to students seeking financial assistance for student presentations at academic conferences. Additional funds may be available for international travel.
Generally, funding from the Dean’s office is restricted to transportation and conference registration costs. A contribution from the student’s home department and the department chair’s signature indicate the department’s support.
Please contact Louise Pate at 402.554.4959 with questions about student travel.
Research Poster Printing
The College provides support for Arts and Sciences students presenting their research at on-campus and off-campus conferences by offering free research poster printing.
Posters should be submitted at least one business day in advance of need. Posters must be submitted as email attachments through a UNO email account to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The preferred format is PowerPoint. PDFs will also work.
Know what the poster size requirements are for your conference. We have poster paper available in 24", 36", and 42" widths. Plan your poster so that one dimension will match one of these sizes. Specify in your email what the finished size of the poster should be.
Please consider using dark print against a light background for greater legibility and to save on ink costs.
We do not provide backing, mounting, or laminating for your posters. All posters are printed on matte heavyweight paper.
Social Sciences Research Commons
The Social Science Research Commons (SSRC) is a space for students, faculty, and community members to build opportunities & support networks for interdisciplinary research. Located in Arts & Sciences Hall (ASH) 304, the SSRC is an initiative of the social sciences to promote academic partnership and collaboration by offering a network of support for UNO/UNMC students and faculty as they work to master critical research tools and methodologies.
