Student Travel Awards

The intent of the School of Family Studies and Human Services Travel Awards is to provide travel support to undergraduate and graduate students presenting at domestic and international conferences and meetings.

  • Undergraduate and graduate students who are currently enrolled in a major within the School of Family Studies and Human Services are eligible to apply for a travel award to attend professional conferences. Students who are attending a conference are eligible to receive $50 and those presenting are eligible to receive up to $500.
  • Travel awards are intended for students with limited or no additional travel funding.
  • Within a fiscal year (July 1-June 30), a student may be awarded a maximum of $550 for travel.
  • All students are required to submit proper paperwork for travel. This is a requirement of the University. Each student must have a Travel Request form on file for the related travel in which they are receiving an award.
