Guidelines for CAS Undergraduate Student
Travel Grants Program
PURPOSE
CAS Undergraduate Student Travel Grants are internal awards intended to promote high-quality
research, scholarship, and creative activity by undergraduate students of the College of Arts and
Sciences at Illinois State University. This grant is intended to supplement travel funds provided
by departments/schools or other organizations to help defray the costs of travel.
The program is made possible through the reallocation of temporary funds on an annual basis
and will be renewed in subsequent years pending availability of funds.
AWARD DESCRIPTION
Awards may be funded up to a maximum of $250 for travel to a professional conference or
meeting to present the results of research or creative activity.
SELECTION PROCESS AND CRITERIA
The Office of the Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences will make these awards. Applications
from all undergraduate students who have either a first or second major in the College of Arts
and Sciences will be considered. Each proposal must include the endorsement of the student’s
Chair/Director on the cover page of the proposal.
PROPOSAL PROCESS AND SUBMISSION DEADLINES
Two submission and review cycles will occur each academic year. A student may be funded
once per academic year. E-mail proposals to [email protected]
ELIGIBILITY
Individuals eligible for an award must be undergraduate students who have either a first or
second major in the College of Arts and Sciences at Illinois State University at the time of the
conference or meeting. Students must be presenting, not just attending.
