Student Travel and Research Opportunities

For AY 20-21, due to COVID-19 concerns, the current travel policy stipulates that there will be no College-sponsored travel at this time and until further notice.  Therefore, travel may only be used to support participation at in-state conferences (limited to 25 or fewer people) or registration fees for virtual conferences.  These changes are consistent with other COVID-19 related safety and cost containment measures being made by the College at this time.  

Grants are available to students who are doing 350, 360, or 370 work.  

Grants are awarded on a first-come, first-serve basis; however, since our resources for student research and travel are limited, we cannot provide additional funding to Schiff and Daniels awardees.

The application form contains more guidelines relating to the awards.

Science students should apply for conference travel funds through the Science Center (For science students, travel funds from the Provost's Office are managed by the Science Center).

Other student grants include early research opportunities in natural and social science, available for sophomores; the Summer Social Science Program; the Quantitative Analysis Institute (QAI) Summer Program, the Pamela Daniels '59 Fellowship, the Mellon Mays Undergraduate Fellowship Program and the McNair Scholars Program
