OUR Research Travel Awards 2020-21
Office of Undergraduate Research (OUR) Research Travel Awards provide up to $500 to undergraduate students engaged in research or creative projects who must travel away from campus to execute their project (e.g., to consult materials in an archive). Funds may be applied towards transportation costs, lodging, and/or meal costs, where permitted by University policy. All domestic and international travel outside the state of Connecticut is currently suspended, so in-state travel costs are the only expenses currently allowable under this program.
OUR Research Travel Awards are available to full-time undergraduate students pursing a bachelor's degree in all majors at all UConn campuses. Part-time students may apply for these awards if they have completed at least 60 academic credits (including at least 12 credits at UConn) and have a minimum UConn cumulative GPA of 2.8 or better. Travel associated with this award must be completed before the student graduates from their bachelor's degree program.

Applications are reviewed on a rolling basis and awards are made until funds are exhausted. Awards will not normally be made in support of summer projects, but applications related to summer work will be considered if funding remains after the application deadline. Funding for this program, which is intended to support students across the university, is limited. Multiple students applying for support for the same project or related projects may receive smaller awards. Students who have previously received support from OUR for their projects may receive smaller awards or lower priority for funding.
