University Enrichment Committee (UEC) Student Travel Awards for Conference Presentation
Proposals are invited for travel funding for full-time students whose independent work has been accepted for presentation at regional or national conferences. Funding is for the student(s) who actually present(s) the paper or work. The maximum limit on each award is $500. Student co-presenters will share a single grant.
Conference travel scheduled for the current academic year is eligible for consideration. Applications will be processed as received through April 15.
Decisions will be based on the clarity, strength and completeness of the written proposal, appropriateness of the proposed budget, and strength of a supporting letter from the faculty adviser.
Requirements of Award Holders
Once the award is made, any deviation in expenditures from the approved budget must receive the approval of the University Enrichment Committee. Please send such requests to email@example.com.
In order to obtain reimbursement for conference travel costs, students must do the following:
- Submit a written report of the project, preferably in the format presented at the conference such as a paper or poster, to firstname.lastname@example.org within ten days of their return from the conference.
- Submit a completed Reimbursement Request Form with original receipts to both email@example.com and copy firstname.lastname@example.org on the same message (do not send two separate messages).
Notice on Grant Limits
Because of the increasing demand for student research and travel funds, the University Enrichment Committee is unable to award more than one research or travel grant to a single student during the academic year.
