Conference Travel Award

In light of current University policies in place due to COVID-19, the OUR is only awarding funds for virtual conferences or symposia and offering a maximum award of $250 for conference expenses. For information related to the University's policies and tracking of COVID-19, get updates at

When non-essential university-sponsored travel is able to resume, awards may be given to fund conference expenses and are accepted on a rolling basis. Applications must be submitted at least 4 weeks prior to the conference. Funding is only given to cover expenses for conferences where students are presenting their research. As with all funding awards from the OUR, students must be nominated for a Conference Travel Award by a faculty member. The award is not intended to fund a prior experience.
