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:
- Meet with the Director of Undergraduate Research, Dr. Sara Sewell, soon after the announcement of the award. Email Dr. Sewell (email@example.com) to set up an appointment.
