Undergraduate Research Program

Apply Now

UPDATE: June 16, 2020
We have expended our travel award funds for the 2019-20 academic year and are currently only able to accept new applications from UW Bothell students, and Mary Gates, Washington Research Foundation, and Levinson scholars as those awards include travel funding. If you are among these groups, email urp@uw.edu for an application link. Regardless of your status, be advised that we are currently accepting applications for online/virtual conferences only.
We look forward to accepting new applications for all students this autumn for the 2020-21 academic year. We will update this site with any future changes to this policy.

Award Information

Applications for Undergraduate Research Conference Travel Awards are accepted on a rolling basis and are reviewed monthly. Please review the eligibility criteria and information for applicants before you apply.

The travel award is for partial support to present your research at a professional conference*. The amount of the award is based on expenses incurred. Airfare and conference registration fees may be covered in their entirety; other expenses may be partially covered. Each award amount will be determined based on the expense summary you submit with your application.

*Due to limits in funding, we do not typically fund travel outside North America. Contact urp@uw.edu before applying if you have questions about your conference.
