Funding Available and Eligibility
CEI Scholars and Fellows may apply for up to $1000 in travel expenses to support attendance at a disciplinary conference where the student shares the results of their faculty-directed community-based project. Applications are submitted and awards announced on a rolling decision basis after review.
Funded expenses may include conference registration, air or rail fare, mileage if traveling by car, hotel, and local transportation. Food and incidentals are not included.
Expenses are reimbursed after completion of travel and submission of travel receipts to CEI. If the faculty sponsor is making travel arrangements funds may be released to the department.
