Travel Awards

The Office of Undergraduate Research through the Division of Academic & Student Affairs (DASA) may provide Travel Awards up to $500 (amounts may vary) to current (active/enrolled) NC State University undergraduate students to formally present their research at a regional, national, and/or international conference. These awards are given on a rolling basis. There is no hard deadline. The number of available travel awards in any given academic year will be based on available funding.

Effective immediately and until further notice, University travel remains restricted due to UNC System directives and public health concerns. OUR Travel Awards are currently on hold until further notice. Thank you.

If you are presenting at a virtual conference, please see the Virtual Conference Award page using link below.
