PDF and RCF Explained

InfoReady Application Explained


Important Guidelines:

Professional Development Fund (PDF)

This year, the PDF will only be used for virtual conference registration fees as travel is banned by UNCG.

**FOR SPRING PDF 2021 ONLY: Students who are NOT presenting can also apply for funding! Priority goes to those who are presenting. Even if you are not presenting, you STILL need ALL the information below.

Remember these things as you prepare your application!

1. Letter of support: from faculty advisor or mentor, why it’s important to attend and/or present, and how it benefits you as a student.
2. Student reimbursement form found on the Funding Forms tab.
3. Receipt of conference; itemized list of costs
4. Conference at a glance, schedule, thank you note, etc. to establish proof of attendance
5. (International Students only) NRA001, NRA002 or I-55 1 Form

Note: the PDF is capped at $200.

Research Capstone Fund (RCF)

Request for the university to pay for an item/service
This is not a reimbursement, only a purchase request

For your submission: Highlight how the item/service will provide benefit to something more than the individual making the request (UNCG, the community, etc).
 The item will belong to the lab/department you are in, not you.

Note: The RCF is capped at $300.


**Please note, & both go to the Treasurer.
