Recruit-at-Home Funding Request for CSE PhD Students

A graduate student gives a talk

Be an ambassador for the CSE graduate programs!

The CSE Graduate Admissions Committee has approved a program called Recruit-at-Home under which current CSE PhD students can apply to travel to their alma maters to present a recruitment talk. Under the program, up to $800 in qualifying trip expenses can be reimbursed. Pre-approval is required.

Expenses may include travel and light refreshments provided during the talk. Alcohol may not be served.

Presenters will be asked to collect sign-ins from attendees. Sign-ins are required for us to continue this program.

Application process

If you are a current CSE PhD student and would like to apply, please complete the CSE Recruit-at-Home Program Form.

Once you submit the form, your request will be reviewed by the department and the CSE Graduate Programs Office will contact you to let you know if approval is granted.

  • Pre-approval must be obtained via the program form prior to the trip in order to qualify for reimbursement.
  • Alcohol may not be served at the recruiting talk.
  • An attendee signup process must be completed and submitted with your reimbursement request and to the Graduate Programs Office.
