Undergrad Travel Funds

Travel applications

Undergraduate student research travel funds are available through RTT for students who have submitted abstracts, or the disciplinary equivalent, such as auditions, and accepted to present at a conference. Applications are accepted during both the fall and spring semesters, and will be accepted until funds are expended. Notification of presentation acceptance must accompany the application. *Note - these funds are not for funding research travel or attending a conference without presentation.

Funding: Up to $400 for individual travel and up to $1,000 for group travel.
**Group travel applies when three or more students are attending the same event.

Deadline: October 1st and then reoccurring the first of each month until funds are expended for the academic year.

Both individual and group awards include a 50% match requirement: meaning, half of the award must be matched by a named source. These sources can include: a Student Undergraduate Research Fellowship (SURF) or other sponsored award; funding from the college, department, faculty sponsor, or student's own resources; or another named source.

If you are awarded travel funds, you or your group are obligated to present your research or creative project at the next Create @ State annual symposium, scheduled each spring semester.

Applications will only be accepted through A-State's online application portal, InfoReady:
