OUR Student Travel Fund

The Office of Undergraduate Research (OUR-CPP) will provide scholarship awards between $100 to $1,000 to both undergraduate and graduate students to travel and to attend professional meetings to make original presentations based on research, creative or scholarly work. If traveling to a professional conference, the student MUST be presenting his or her research at the meeting.  The fund cannot support travel solely for such purposes as performing duties as an officer of a club or participating in activities associated with coursework.

Students may use these awards to pay for conference registration, travel, parking, lodging, and food while away from their home campus of CPP. Only one trip per student can be supported during the current academic year (e.g. September 1, 2017, through August 17, 2018). We encourage groups to submit individual applications as funding is limited. Preference will be given to students who can submit a confirmation of conference or abstract acceptance.
