Application to Request OUR Student Travel Funds

Funding is based on the fiscal year and availability of funds.   All funded travel is reimbursed and no OUR funds are advanced or pre-paid  for travel.

This is the Application for Office of Undergraduate Research (OUR) Student Travel Funding.  Please read the Guidelines for funding prior to completing and submitting your application. Completed applications, which include the required attachments, must be submitted a minimum of four weeks prior to the planned date of departure.  The earlier the better, as funding is limited.

You must also attach your completed travel authorization form, signed by both you and your faculty sponsor, at the end of this application to submit your application. Please read about the additional required documentation you must submit. The authorization form that is attached to this application must indicate the actual expenses you expect to incur and documentation about the conference and/or proof of participation. Incomplete applications will not be considered for funding.

Applications with an attached blank or incomplete travel authorization, or without student and faculty signatures, with no supporting documentation, and/or submitted less than four weeks from date of departure will not be considered for funding.  Each individual student requesting funding must apply and must meet eligibility requirements as noted in the guidelines.

Format: (xxx) xxx-xxxx
