Student Travel Grant

Eligibility

Each year approximately $5,000 will be available through CoSM’s STEM Education Fund to help support students to present at professional conferences.  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.  In these cases, students are encouraged to apply.

Funding

Travel grants are capped at $500. 

Restrictions

  • 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.

Important Deadlines

  • In order to be reimbursed for travel expense receipts must be submitted within 30 days of travel.
