Undergraduate & Graduate Travel Scholarships

The College of Nursing (CON) has a limited amount of travel scholarship funding dedicated to support students who present at professional meetings/conferences. This presentation (poster, podium) may be done as an individual or in conjunction with a faculty member or group. Students may receive only one travel scholarship per academic year. Funding will be provided as a reimbursement to the student.

Eligibility Requirements

Eligible individuals for a travel scholarship meet these requirements:

  • University of Utah College of Nursing (CON) students, including students from the Gerontology Interdisciplinary Program, and/or students engaged in CON faculty-mentored research
  • Students whose research/project has been submitted for presentation at a professional meeting/conference are eligible to apply for funding; however, funding will only be released to students whose abstract has been accepted for presentation.

Undergraduate Students

Undergraduate students must show evidence of applying for the Undergraduate Research Travel Awards.

Graduate Students

Graduate students must show evidence of applying for the Graduate Student Travel Assistance Award.

NOTE: You do not need to receive either the Graduate Student Travel Assistance Award or the Undergraduate Research Travel Award, but must apply in order to be considered for CON Travel Scholarship.

Funding Amount

  • Requests up to a maximum of $2,000 are considered.
  • Monies received from other university sources will count against the $2,000 limit (namely, if a student receives a $400 graduate travel assistance award the student is only eligible for $1600 in CON funding).

Funding Priority

  • Funding is granted on a first come, first serve basis.
  • Priority is determined by received date of travel application.
  • Applications not awarded funding will be placed on a waiting list in the event funding becomes available.
  • Students should not submit an abstract if their chair/advisor/co-authors are unable to present in the student's absence.

Eligible Reimbursements

  • Airfare or car mileage
  • Ground transportation fares
  • Lodging
  • Abstract fees
