Undergraduate Research Grant For Conference Attendance
The Undergraduate Research Program accepts proposals from individual students to support travel to attend academic conferences. In most cases, the maximum award is $250 to cover travel, ground transportation, accommodations, and the conference registration fee. Dining expenses will not be supported. Any cost overruns will be the responsibility of the student unless specifically cleared by the Undergraduate Research committee.
