This money will supplement the STEM-directed undergraduate research Higher Education Recruitment Consortium (HERC) funds also managed by the Office for Research. These funds will allow ISU to provide opportunities for all undergraduate students.
The Provost commits these funds to provide research opportunities for all ISU undergraduate students. These funds will be available through an application process for research travel and research projects.
Research travel includes:
- attending professional conferences, to present their work and network, and
- to travel for scholarly pursuits, such as to visit an exhibit or a library for research.
To receive an application for travel funds contact Julie Bachman, firstname.lastname@example.org.
Funds may be used for travel costs, lodging and conference registration. Applications will be accepted on a continuous basis.
