Travel Grant Program

The Travel Grant Program helps FURI students and other Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering students conducting research with a faculty member participate in national conferences by providing financial assistance with travel expenses. Conference presentations provide exceptional opportunities for you to present your research, compare data, and network with peers. These presentations may include presenting a research poster or even giving a research talk at a conference! You will not only learn, you will be contributing to a broader knowledge base.

Travel grant funding is limited.
