Conference and Travel Reimbursements

LAUNCH: Undergraduate Research can offer up to 21 travel awards for $300.00 to students on main campus and 8 travel awards up to $300.00 to students on the TAMUG campus. These awards are available on a first-come, first-served basis for conference registration and travel expenses to make a public presentation of your Undergraduate Research Scholars project at a national or international conference or meeting. Contact us at ugr@tamu.edu before making a purchase to verify that the expenses can be covered.

This travel award will be processed through the office of Scholarships & Financial Aid. Reimbursements are posted to your Texas A&M University student account in the form of a scholarship. If you have a balance due to your student account, this payment will be applied toward that balance. Students receiving need-based financial aid should be aware that this travel award may result in revisions to your financial aid package. You can set up direct deposit through Howdy on the Finance tab.

We will accept requests for conference or travel reimbursements starting November 1, 2017 through April 2, 2018. Please contact us at ugr@tamu.edu to obtain a reimbursement form and further instructions.

Note: You may apply for either but not both the poster/conference and travel reimbursement for your public presentation.
