Student Travel to Present Funds

Travel to Present Application

Student Travel to Present Funds are made possible by generous friends and alumni of Skidmore College. Awards support student travel to present research or creative projects on an official basis at a conference or a professional meeting. Grants may be used to defray the costs of travel to the conference, lodging, and meals. Students should seek support from their departments to cover conference registration and membership fees in the professional organization. Grant amounts are typically $500-$700 and depend on availability of funds each semester.

Funds are not available for travel to attend a meeting where the student does not present, or for class-related activities (curricular or co-curricular). Please email with questions. 

For guidance on the application process, see these application details and the criteria and procedures for receiving funding.

Application checklist:


Students must apply at least three weeks before the conference.
