2015 Undergraduate Research Symposium

Undergraduate Research Grant for Group Conference Attendance

The Undergraduate Research Program accepts proposals from groups of students/faculty to support travel to attend academic conferences. In most cases, the maximum award is $250 per student 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 students or the students' department unless specifically cleared by the Undergraduate Research committee.



If awarded a conference travel grant, the students/faculty are expected to complete the following:

  1. Meet with a member of the Undergraduate Research Committee soon after the announcement of the award. Students whose projects were conducted in departments in either the Humanities or Social Sciences divisions, should email the Director of Undergraduate Research, Dr. Sara Sewell (, to set up an appointment. Students whose projects were conducted in departments in the Natural Sciences & Mathematics Division, should email Dr. Soraya Bartol (, to set up an appointment.

  2. Make all financial arrangements for the conference through VWC's Business Office with Ms. Midge Zimmerman. You may contact Ms. Zimmerman at

  3. After the conference, submit an itemized expense record using this form. This is due 2 weeks after the conference.

  4. After the conference, submit 2 or 3 photographs of you at the conference (i.e. presenting a paper/poster or with a conference sign/banner). These pictures might be used for publicity. Email the pictures to Dr. Sewell.
