The Travel Grant Program
The Undergraduate Conference Fund for Research is a way for SGB to award Travel Grants of up to $250 to support undergraduate non-CGS students who are invited to present their research at a conference.
To qualify for the program, the applicant must:
- be an undergraduate non-CGS University of Pittsburgh – Pittsburgh Campus student.
- have been invited to present his or her research at a conference.
- not have received an SGB Travel Grant within the fiscal year or have been awarded more than two SGB Travel Grants within their tenure at the University of Pittsburgh
Though approval is required prior to the conference, all funds shall be reimbursed after attending the conference. The applicant shall submit a reimbursement form to the SORC office (833 WPU) within 30 days of the end of the conference.
Please note that funds shall only be granted for registration, lodging, and transportation. They may not be used for international travel, first-class airfare, or meals and preference will be given to those who do not have alternative sources of funding (though having other funding sources in no way disqualifies you from applying).
The application for Conferences taking place Fall 2017 - Spring of 2018 will go live in August
