The Office of Student Life and Development (SLD) is pleased to offer the Student Academic Travel Grant.  The grant is available for currently enrolled CSULB students wishing to grow in their academic discipline by presenting an academic paper/research or a poster presentation at a professional academic conference, workshop, seminar, and/or lecture. The SLD Student Academic Travel Grant aims to supplement the cost of travel to an academic conference.  Applications must be submitted AFTER travel has occurred.

The grant recipient may use the funds for reimbursement of their conference registration, transportation, lodging, and/or membership (only if required to present) fees.  Students presenting an academic paper/research are eligible to receive up to $400.00 while students conducting poster presentations are eligible to receive up to $300.00.  The SLD Student Academic Travel Grant may be awarded to a student only once as an undergraduate and only once as a graduate.  Please allow 6-8 weeks for reimbursement if awarded funding.

For additional, possible funding resources, please contact your academic college and department.  Students are also encouraged to apply for the Associated Students Inc.
