URGO offers up to $850 in travel funding for Augsburg students who wish to present research at a professional conference. These funds can mitigate the high costs of travel such as airfare and lodging, and can contribute to students’ professionalization. Students should contact a faculty member in their department to learn about professional conferences in their field.
All travel funds have been allocated for this year. If you plan to travel to a conference prior to June, we recommend you inquire with your department or the professional organization that is hosting the conference about possibly funding. If your conference will occur between June – August, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Funded students are required to fill out the expense report form below and turn in all itemized receipts to the URGO office within two weeks upon return from the conference.
