College of Science And Technology Undergraduate Travel Fellowship

Undergraduate Students with majors in the College of Science and Technology are eligible to Apply

During the 2020-2021 academic year, Undergraduate Travel Fellowship applications will be accepted two times: October 2, 2020 and FEBRUARY 19, 2021.

The October deadline is nominally for travel occurring from about September through February.  The February deadline is nominally for travel occurring from about February through August.  The September /February deadlines are for complete applications.  A complete application includes your faculty mentor's verification of your application.  You should make sure your faculty mentor knows you are submitting an application and that your application is submitted far enough in advance of the deadline that your faculty mentor will have time to submit their materials.  Award notifications typically occur 5 weeks after the application deadline.
