Student Travel-to-Present Awards

The Student Travel-to-Present Funds are made possible by generous friends and alumni of the College. Awards may be used to support student travel to present research or creative projects at a conference or a professional meeting or to share work at a juried exhibition.  Grants may be used to defray the costs of travel, lodging, and meals.  Students should seek support from their departments to cover conference registration and membership fees in the professional organization, if applicable.

Due to the limited amount of funds, we do not provide funds for students traveling to attend a conference without presenting their work.  We also do not provide funds for student travel related to a class activity (required or voluntary) or as part of a co-curricular activity sponsored by a department or program.

Grant amounts are typically $200-$500.  The amounts of the awards always depend in part on the total dollars available for each semester.

 Students must apply at least three weeks before the conference.
