Undergraduate Student Conference Travel Grants

Gateway awards travel grants of up to $250 (depending on availability of funds) to undergraduate students in the Social Sciences at Rice who are presenting a paper or a poster as a first author at a conference.  Proposals are accepted on a rolling basis. Each student may receive this award a maximum of two times during his or her undergraduate career at Rice.   

Interested students must apply online through this link: http://goo.gl/forms/mXgls7a9uk

Funding Requirements

Students who receive an award must provide within two weeks of the end date of travel a well-written account of the research presented, along with a personal reflection of the impact of their experience. Students are also required to provide a picture confirming their attendance at the event. This short write-up, and picture, will be featured on the Gateway website student news section and may be highlighted in School of Social Sciences social media accounts.
