Faculty-Sponsored Student Research Travel
The Associate Dean administers a limited budget to support faculty-sponsored student travel to research conferences. Students may apply to Associate Dean Jonathan Wright for partial support for travel to professional conferences if the student is first author or second author to a faculty member on a research presentation. To apply, complete and submit to Associate Dean Wright a signed hard copy of the student travel application form [doc] . Requests are accepted throughout the year; because funding is limited, apply early. Grants range from $200 to $800 and may be applied to travel, room and board and/or registration expenses. Additional support to enable students to attend professional conferences often comes from departmental funds.
To request reimbursement after travel, students must submit within one month of returning from their trip a completed Travel Expense Report [xls] , original receipts, and boarding passes. The Travel Expense Report should be reviewed by the appropriate Academic Department Coordinator prior to being submitted to Sandra Fenton, Alexander 225, for payment authorization.
For more information and an student travel application form [doc] , please contact Associate Dean Jonathan Wright, Alexander 226.
