Attending national and international conferences is an important activity for undergraduate researchers. At conferences, you are able to meet scientists in your field, hear about new research, and present your own work. 

Often you can find partial or even full funding to support your travel to present at a conference. Below are tips and campus resources for securing funding.


Check to see if the conference you are attending offers travel grants for student presenters. Often the organization hosting the event has funds for this purpose, but it is very important to apply early!

FRI Students: Ask you research supervisor if they have funds or know of funds that are available to support student travel to conferences.
