The Department of Mathematics accepts applications for travel grants for up to $250 for in-state conferences and up to $500 for out-of-state conferences. No moneys are awarded for international travel. These awards are given to facilitate
educational and professional development through conference participation by an undergraduate student presenting a paper or poster in Mathematics.

The awards are given as reimbursements. Travel grant applications will be considered on a rolling basis (September 1 – August 31). Awards will be given as a first come, first served basis since there are limited funds available.

Application requirements include:

  • Proof of acceptance of paper/poster (e.g., acceptance letter/email, program, abstract, etc.)
  • Student’s name, degree plan, and expected graduation
  • Destination & name of conference
  • Dates of Conference
  • Estimated expenses and amount requested
  • Description of additional financial support, if any
  • Name of faculty advisor(s)
  • Faculty advisor's approval for the travel
  • A paragraph on the summary of request, including description of benefits & opportunities

Eligibility Requirements:

  • The applicant must be a full-time undergraduate student, majoring in Mathematics, in good academic standing, and the travel must occur while the applicant is a current student.
  • We are not able to provide funding for virtual conference attendance.
  • The applicant must be traveling to a meeting or conference to present their own work or work on which they are the primary author.
  • If student received travel grant funding from the Mathematics Undergraduate Travel Grant during the last application year, the student may not apply during this cycle.

Applications are accepted throughout the academic year and are reviewed by the Director of Undergraduate Research.  Please submit applications requirements (or questions) to Dr. Divya Vernerey.
