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:
