To Attend and Present at Conferences and Workshops

Would you like to meet students from other universities in the U.S. or around the world? Consider participating in a national or international conference.

Organizations offering these opportunities include:

Naval Academy Foreign Affairs Conference

Youth Leadership Conference (Prague)

Sigma Iota Rho National Student Research Conference

Conference registration support

If conference registration fees are a deterrent, note that the MU Center for Transnational Justice (CTJ) will cover the registration fees for faculty, graduate, and undergraduate student participation in virtual conferences (national and international) addressing issues of systemic racism. Proposals consist of an application email describing the conference, the applicant’s role (attendee, presenter), and a conference website link. Conferences must take place before the end of the 2021-2022 fiscal year. There is no submission deadline and registration fee support will take place as long as budget conditions allow. Send proposal emails to Jobey Clarke at CTJ (

To Publish your Work

Have your written an innovative paper for a course at Marquette? Consider getting it published in either an undergraduate journal or in rare cases with exceptional work a leading scholarly journal. Work with your professors to explore opportunities.

Here are some examples of journals that publish undergraduate work: Journal of Undergraduate International Studies (UW Madison), Olive Roots (this journal focuses on Israeli-Palestinian Conflict and is published by Claremont McKena College), Undergraduate Journal of International Studies (Indiana University), and Virginia Review of Asian Studies
