Student Conference Travel Program


The Office of Research, Engagement, and Sponsored Programs (RESP) Undergraduate Conference Travel Program supports the efforts of IPFW undergraduate students who are involved in faculty-mentored research projects. To be eligible, a student must have a paper accepted for presentation at a professional conference being held in the United States.

Application Process:

To apply, the faculty mentor must supply the following information:

  • Student's Name, Major, Title of Presentation
  • Name, Dates, and Location of the Conference
  • A copy of the conference agenda/abstract, and/or letter from conference organizers to the student accepting student as presenter
  • Commitment of financial support (indicate dollar amount) from department
  • Commitment of financial support (indicate dollar amount) from school

No more than two students will be supported for travel to a particular conference from a single department or program per year.

Applications are accepted on a continual basis and are awarded based on the availability of funds.


RESP will provide up to $250.00 per student presenter. Awards are made on a reimbursement basis. Upon furnishing RESP with an approved Form 25, funds will be transferred into the department account. Requested documentation must be provided to RESP within 120 days of the end of the business trip.
