Conference Travel Grants

Conference Travel Grants


University encourages its undergraduates not only to carry out scholarly and creative projects but also to present their results or perform productions at recognized regional, national, and international conferences or meetings. Participation provides an important opportunity for students to communicate research findings, network with other researchers, and expand an understanding of the scope and nature of academic research.

Conference Travel Grants will fund 50% of expenses up to $500, and we encourage students to seek out additional support as well.  Students can receive the grant multiple times.
