Student Travel Support

Request Travel Support Funds

If you are currently conducting research with a faculty member and would like to apply for travel funding assistance to attend a psychological conference, please complete the Student Travel Authorization Form.

All requests for travel support must be made FOUR WEEKS prior to day one of travel and will be evaluated based on available departmental funds. When funds are available, the Department tries to provide support funds that cover annual membership (when necessary), early-bird registration, and one day per diem (food). Applicants can anticipate a response in 7-10 business days.

Please note: Students may receive departmental travel support no more than once per fiscal year (July through June).

Please be prepared to provide a personal statement and/or photo relaying your conference experience to the Department of Psychology when you return, to be used on departmental social media platforms, the annual newsletter, and at events (e.g., PsychFest).

For potential grant funding opportunities please contact your faculty mentor.
