Student Travel Grant

The Center for Student Research is pleased to offer support to students incurring expenses while traveling to professional meetings and conferences. Students supported by this competitive travel award are expected to be actively involved in the proceedings of the conference or meeting they choose to attend. Active participation includes making oral presentations, presenting posters or participating on a panel. In fine arts fields, active participation may include performance or exhibition of a new composition. Only students accompanying a faculty member will be eligible to receive the award.  

Students of all majors are eligible for funding. Funds may support registration, travel, hotel and food costs. The maximum award is $500; however, lesser amounts to provide partial funding may be awarded based on the number of applications and other factors.
