UR Travel Funding

The Center for Transformative Undergraduate Experiences (TrUE) provides travel funding for TTU undergraduate students to offset costs associated with presenting at a academic or professional conference.

Applications for undergraduate research (UR) travel funding may be submitted in any amount, up to $1,000. Students must be presenting their own original research, scholarship, or creative activity at the conference for which funding is requested to be eligible for TRUE undergraduate research (UR) travel funding.

Funding is limited and early submission is advised.Please review the full list of restrictions, requirements, and follow-up responsibilities to ensure you are able to fulfill all stipulations of the funding process prior to completing the conference travel funding form. Incomplete funding applications or applications that do not meet these requirements will not be considered.

Students will receive decision notifications regarding UR travel funding applications by email once the travel funding request is received and reviewed by TrUE staff. Funding is allocated according to Texas Tech University and State of Texas travel regulations, and final approval of all committed funds will be left to the discretion of TrUE. Once funding is depleted for the fiscal year, no further travel funding requests will be considered or awarded.
