Travel Grant Application Instructions
Travel Grants assist students with the costs of presenting completed research at a scholarly
conference. Other types of travel (e.g: visiting an archive for an extracurricular research or
community project) may be considered on a case-by-case; contact us with your
ideas. Priority will be given to applications on which students are listed as the presenting author,
and applications to disseminate research projects that highlight research collaboration (e.g.,
collaboration between student researchers, and/or collaboration between student and faculty
Please note that you may apply for a Travel Grant BEFORE you have been accepted to the
conference, but that you will only receive the Travel Grant AFTER you have provided CURL with
proof of acceptance.
All Travel Grant Applications must include:

The submitted conference abstract (including abstract title, student author, and faculty
mentor/course instructor.) Note that a conference abstract is necessary for participation in
most conferences--we would like to receive the same abstract that you sent to the
conference leaders for consideration.

The name, date, and location of the conference

Your proposed dates of travel

An itemized list of expenses (e.g: travel, housing, registration, etc.)

Supporting documentation from a CURL Faculty Associate confirming that the student
plans to attend AND that the student is presenting original work
