Competitive funding is expected to be available for up to $500 per student for research or creative activity presentations at conferences, exhibits, or recitals (or similar dissemination of research or creative activity). Priority will be given to presentations of original student work at such venues.
Full-time undergraduate majors in the College of Arts and Letters are eligible to apply. Travel must occur during the period of time that the student is enrolled as an undergraduate student.The proposal for student travel must be endorsed by a faculty sponsor.
