Travel Grants 

 

There are two deadlines for Travel Grants in Fall 2017: Friday, September 22 and Friday, November 3, 2017. 

 

The Office of Undergraduate Research provides grants to assist both students and faculty with research conducted at UNF. Travel Grants are based on financial need and can provide up to $750 of support. Travel grants should be used for students wanting to travel to collect data, interview participants, etc. Funds from Travel Grants should not be used for conferences. Students wishing to apply for funding for conference travel should apply for a Conference Grant. Funds from an OUR travel grant must be used during a student's undergraduate career. Students can receive one Conference or Travel Grant per academic year and faculty can be associated with two Conference and/or Travel Grants per academic year.  To help us meet the needs of as many undergraduates as possible, please make every attempt to be cost effective when making travel arrangements. 

 

Travel funding for individual students are as follows: 

  • Regional - up to $250
  • National - up to $500
  • International - up to $750

Travel funding for groups of students (2 or more students) are as follows: 

  • Up to $1,000 for regional, national, and international
