Student Travel Grant
The Associate Provost for Academic Achievement awards Student Travel Grants that provide modest funds to subsidize the costs associated with your attendance at a professional meeting to present the results of original research, discuss a unique academic program, or participate in a visual, performance, or creative arts competition.
Please review the following guidelines if you are interested in applying for a Student Travel Grant:
- Application for funds should be submitted prior to attending the meeting.
- Requests are made through the High Impact experience Award Application.
- The maximum award each semester per student is $300. If, in the spring semester, there are adequate funds available, a second application from a student to attend a second professional meeting or competition will be considered, but a second award should not be considered automatic.
Examples of expenses associated with attending a professional meeting are:
Attending to present results of original research, discuss a unique academic program, or participate in a visual, performance, or creative arts competition.
- travel costs (e.g., mileage, plane/train/bus tickets, parking)
- hotel, if trip is overnight
- professional business attire (e.g., shoes, blouse, dress pants, blazer, tie)
