To help students share their research, the Office of Undergraduate Research offers awards to cover travel expenses to conduct or present research or creative activity that has been accepted or submitted for presentation at an academic or professional conference. These awards are offered in the fall and spring, and usually range from $100 to $600.
During the review process, preference is shown for:
- students with financial need and those who do not have alternative sources of funding
- travel that is necessary to carry out research or creative activity (e.g., for data collection)
- oral presentations over poster presentations
- regional, national, and international scholarly conferences
We are not able to support travel to undergraduate conferences (e.g., NCUR, student-organized conferences, etc.).
