We have expended our conference travel award funds for the 2017-18 academic year and are currently only able to accept new applications from Mary Gates, Washington Research Foundation (WRF), and Levinson scholars as those awards include travel funding. Mary Gates, WRF, and Levinson scholars should email urp@uw.edu for the link the apply.
We look forward to accepting new applications for all students this autumn for the 2018-19 academic year.

Publicly communicating your own research and sharing your ideas with others are important parts of engaging in academic research.

The Undergraduate Research Conference Travel Award:

  • Enables you to extend your research experience by contributing to important discussions of current research at professional conferences
  • Provides funding toward national conference travel expenses and registration fees

Please note: This funding is not provided for students to carry out research. Return to the Research Funding homepage for more information on funding to carry out research.

We encourage all students who have a paper, poster, or scholarly creative work that has been accepted for presentation at a professional conference to apply for an award.

Funding for this program is generously provided by the UW’s Office of Research, the Mary Gates Endowment for Students, and the Undergraduate Research Program.
