OUR Conference Presentation Awards
Office of Undergraduate Research (OUR) Conference Presentation Awards provide up to $500 to undergraduate students engaged in research or creative projects who have the opportunity to present their research or creative project at a regional, national, or international conference. Students may use these awards to pay for conference registration and for travel expenses (meals, travel, parking, and lodging), where permitted by University policy. International, university-sponsored travel by students to destinations with a Level 3 or 4 travel advisory requires an approved waiver from Global Affairs. Information on international travel and access to the travel waiver application is available at https://global.uconn.edu/home-2/international-travel-information/. OUR will not fund a student to travel internationally unless the student has secured all necessary travel registrations, waivers, and approvals.
OUR Conference Presentation Awards are available to full-time undergraduate students, in good academic standing, 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). 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. 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 presentation may receive smaller awards. Students who have previously received support from OUR for their projects may receive smaller awards or lower priority for funding.
