Funds are available to support undergraduate student travel for presentations at professional meetings.  The Office of Undergraduate Research & Creative Activities of the Honors College will underwrite up to $500 (per student) for students presenting a paper, poster, performance, or participating in a formal competition at a professional conference.  Requests for funds will be considered on a rolling basis.  Students as well as faculty should choose their venues carefully as awards are limited to a maximum of two meetings and $1,000 per student with priority given to students who have not previously received funds.  Offers of supplemental support by departments and/or colleges will be considered favorably.

To apply, the student should submit the following materials at least three (3) weeks prior to departure for the conference:

  1. letter of request (include title, conference, dates, how to contact you, and other information you feel pertinent to your request);
  2. an itemized budget;
  3. copy of the meeting announcement with registration and lodging costs;
  4. copy of an abstract, performance, or competition description;
  5. letter of acceptance from the conference coordinator;
  6. letter of recommendation from the faculty sponsor;
  7. statement from the appropriate Department Chair and/or College Dean regarding offers of supplemental funds.

Proposals for larger grants will be considered from faculty member(s) intending to accompany a group of undergraduates presenting at a professional meeting.  These proposals may include requests for funds to offset registration costs for students and travel (mileage or university vehicle).  Please submit letter of request, budget request, meeting information, a list of the students (and ETSU ID numbers) attending, and copies of individual or group abstracts/descriptions and acceptance letter(s). 

One copy of all materials should be submitted to:

Dr. Foster Levy, Honors College, Box 70589, ETSU

Please contact Dr. Levy with your questions (levyf@etsu.edu or call 439-6926).
