Travel Support

The Research Advisory Council provides some support for undergraduate student travel to meetings if they are presenting research results.    The travel support is typically limited to $500. To be eligible for support, the student must:

1. Be a presenting author

2. Provide the following -

a. Copy of the abstract

b. Travel itinerary indicating the dates of travel

c.  Budget breakdown with all funding sources identified. E.g. advisor, department, RAC (a three way split between the sources is strongly encouraged.)

3. Student must be nominated by  a TAMUG Principal Investigator (P.I.) who will need to provide a letter of support.   P.I.’s may nominate one student per year.

4. Submit request form with required items to Dr. Tammy Holliday, hollidat@tamug.edu, Research & Graduate Studies office, SAGC, Suite 300.   An electronic copy should be submitted along with the paper copy.  It is strongly recommended that items be submitted two months prior to RAC meeting date.
