Student Travel Grant
Each year approximately $5,000 will be available through CoSM’s STEM Education Fund to help support students to present at professional conferences or attend professional workshops. Generally, students who will be presenting their research or other scholarly endeavors will receive funding (up to $500). However, there may be situations where the student is planning on attending a conference but is unable to present, yet they are explicitly tied to experimental design, data collection, and analysis of the research or scholarly activity that is being presented, or a student may be accepted through a competitive application process to attend a workshop that is designed to teach skills to prepare them for success in graduate school and a career in research. In these cases, students are encouraged to apply.
Students must be in programs within the College of Science and Mathematics and have a faculty advisor or mentor in the College. Students are limited to four awards from this program during the duration of their undergraduate career. Graduate students are eligible to apply if no funding is available from the Graduate School.
Travel grants are capped at $500.
Only STEM students in programs in the College of Science and Mathematics with faculty mentors in CoSM are eligible to apply.
Students are limited to four awards from this program during the duration of their undergraduate career.
Only one student per presentation (typically the primary presenter) can receive the travel award.
Graduate students are eligible to apply if no funding is available from the Graduate School.
In order to be reimbursed for travel expense receipts must be submitted within 30 days of travel.
Any questions about the student travel grant should be directed to Dr. Theresa Grove, Associate Dean, College of Science and Mathematics, (229-333-5699 or firstname.lastname@example.org). This form and any additional documentation should be submitted to the Dean’s Office, College of Science and Mathematics, Hugh C. Bailey Science Center, Room 1036.
