Travel funds support students presenting research or creative activity outcomes at a conference, meeting or congregation of their peers and professionals in their respective field, or to compete in a competition. These awards may only be used to cover travel to the event's location, lodging, perdiems, registration fees, and transportation.
Important: Travel to conduct research or to attend meetings or conferences (but not
present) should be funded through Project Awards.
*** Due to COVID-19, all physical travel funding has been canceled, but registration fees to an online event can still be funded.
Students that have been accepted to present at a virtual conference/meeting may still
apply to receive funding to cover their registration fee.
Applications are accepted any time throughout the year, however, applications must be submitted at least 4 weeks prior to the event.
*** Canceled for Fall 2020 and Spring 2021
Groups of students accepted to present their work or wishing to travel to competitions
may apply for funding up to $4,000 per group.
URSA will only consider one group for each conference or competition, eligible for a maximum of $4,000. Students that apply as individuals or as other groups for the same event will not be considered.
