Undergraduate Research Conference Travel Support

Penn State undergraduates who are presenting the results of their research or creative work at national or regional professional conferences may request financial support to defray the costs of attendance at the conference.

If the request is approved, the costs will be equally split among the student's college of enrollment dean's office, the Office of Undergraduate Education, the sponsoring academic department and, if applicable, the Schreyer Honors College. The contribution from the Office of Undergraduate Education is capped at $400 per student. Students must be a conference presenter to be eligible for Undergraduate Education funding and the presentation must be related to the student's academic program.

Please submit only one application for each presentation. If there are multiple undergraduate presenters for a project, please complete only one application (under the name of one of the student presenters) and add the names of co-presenters in the area designated on the application for additional participants.

The application for travel funds is available at

REMINDER: Group presentations should be submitted as one application under the name of one of the presenters with additional students listed in the designated section. These applications will be considered for awards based on the costs for the entire group of students to attend. Group applications should include shared housing and travel costs whenever possible to create economical use of limited funding. The contribution from Undergraduate Education will not exceed $400 per student and is a matching fund as in the case of individual applications.

Questions or comments about the application or related procedures should be directed to the Associate Dean for Research and Graduate Studies at or (814) 898-6160.
