The competitive travel grant program allows students to apply for up to $500 to attend a professional meeting whereby the student will be the primary presenter. Requests larger than $500 will be considered if the application provides a justifiable need for additional funds.
All undergraduate students who are enrolled in a degree-seeking program at Towson University are eligible to apply. All projects must be mentored by a full-time faculty member. Students and faculty should review Faculty Mentor Responsibilities.
To be eligible for funding, a proposal submitted by a group of undergraduate students must clearly demonstrate that all members of the group will participate equally in the presentation.
The Undergraduate Research Committee will meet to discuss research grant
proposals approximately one week after the deadline. Each applicant will be
informed electronically of the Committee's decision regarding their proposal
within the following week.
Funding received from the TOUR office must be spent down no later than Thursday, June
