Travel and Study Abroad Funding

Arts & Science Undergraduate Travel Fund Competitions

The purpose of the spring and fall Undergraduate Travel Fund Competitions is to assist students, either as individuals or groups, with travel expenses associated with conferences, or other relevant experiences. These events and activities should enhance academic development that is not tied to course credit. Only students registered in the College of Arts & Science are eligible to receive this funding. Students seeking financial support for non-academic travel (eg: teams, clubs, or intervarsity group travel) are not eligible for funding through this competition, unless directly relevant to program of study. Exchange and study abroad programs, expenses for specific academic courses, and subsidization of research programs are not eligible for funding through this competition.

Ensure that you have completed all sections of the application as incomplete applications will not be considered by the Undergraduate Travel Fund Competition Committee. Applications to the spring and fall competitions should be sent via e-mail to the attention of Toryn Adams.
