The purpose of the Research Travel Grants is to help students gain experience in presenting their work at local, national, and even international conferences. Given that research takes place in many different forms and in all disciplines, all undergraduates performing independent research are eligible for the Research Travel Grants. The study of social problems, the creation of a piece of fiction or poetry, the study of a scientific theory or a historic period of time, the solution to engineering and mathematical problems, among other, all qualify as valid research endeavors for this award.
