Undergraduate Travel Grants

Travel Grants are awarded on a competitive basis to students who have had an abstract accepted for a poster or paper presentation at a regional or national conference. A maximum of $300 may be awarded per student for domestic travel. A maximum of $500 may be awarded per student for international travel. The Travel Grant may be used to cover expenses such as hotel costs and airfare or mileage.

This award is a reimbursement award only; you arrange and purchase your travel prior to the conference, and the Travel Grant reimburses you after the conference. Before applying for a Travel Grant, please review the Travel Grant reimbursement guidelines. These guidelines explain allowable expenses, receipts you will need, and documentation you will need to provide.

Please note that expenses will only be reimbursed when original receipts are submitted.

How to Apply

To apply for a Travel Grant, please submit the Travel Grant Pre-Approval Form. This application must be submitted at least one month prior to your departure date and within the academic year in which the travel expenses are incurred.

Please note: Due to university fiscal close protocols, the Undergraduate Research Center is unable to process Travel Grants submitted between June 1 and June 30.
