Student Travel for the Presentation of Research Results
A. Purpose and Overview:
Travel awards may be made to assist students traveling to national or regional professional meetings in order to present the results of collaborative research and creative activity. These awards will not exceed $700 and are intended to encourage students to submit the results of their research for dissemination at professional meetings. As a condition of the travel grant, students are expected to present their results at the annual UW-Eau Claire Student Research Day, or the UW System Symposium for Undergraduate Research and Creative Activity, if they have not presented these findings at one of these venues previously.
UW-Eau Claire students who have documentation of a paper or poster being accepted at a professional meeting and who plan to present their research findings are eligible to apply. If multiple presenters request travel support for a single presentation at a professional meeting, this travel program normally will not support more than two student presenters. If a student plans to present a poster or paper at more than one professional meeting, it is unlikely that any individual will receive more than $1,000 from this program in a single academic year. Faculty co-presenters must seek support through their department.
