Conference Grants

Each year, Undergraduate Research Programs provides support for undergraduates who are presenting their research at professional conferences in their field. The decision to fund students is based on the quality of student proposals, overall academic records and confirmed support from faculty mentors. Conference funding proposals will be reviewed on a rolling basis until funds are exhausted.


Students may be awarded up to $750 domestically and $2500 internationally to cover travel costs. Students can only receive the Conference Grant funding once during their time at Emory University. 

Applications for conference grant funding will reopen at the end of February 2024.  

Additional Funding Opportunities

There are several non-Emory funding opportunities to support your conference expenses. One example, CUR (Council on Undergraduate Research), supports student conference travel. Explore their website to see what funding may be available to you.

Other organizations, including Great Minds in STEM, may be able to help support some of the costs.

Work with your faculty advisor to determine which funding sources are available and appropriate for you.

Reimbursement Information

Students who receive a Conference Grant will need to submit original receipts for their approved travel expenses. Students should submit receipts for reimbursement no later than two weeks after travel. Undergraduate Research Programs can purchase airline tickets for students or can transfer funds to mentor research accounts for expenses paid by the faculty mentor prior to travel.

Please note URP cannot reimburse memberships. We can reimburse conference registration costs.

To get reimbursed for your conference travel, please email and copy to facilitate reimbursement.
