ASP Conference Travel Grants

A student presents her research at the 2018 Summer Research Conference

ASP Conference Travel Grants are available to students who are presenting the results of their research work which was completed while a student at Occidental.

ASP Conference Travel Grant Funding, Eligibility, Requirements

Funds will be awarded to full-time degree-seeking students on a competitive basis. 

Grants are limited to a max of $600 per conference. It may be that the ASP Conference Travel Grant cannot be the sole support for conference participation.

Each student is limited to one ASP Conference grant per academic year and, in most circumstances, will not receive funding to present for a second time at the same conference in subsequent years. 

Each student must be individually presenting their own work - group presentations for a single poster or paper will not be supported. 

  • Please note the Current International Travel Policy (Per IPO, January 2022): The College continues to prohibit other types of international College-sponsored student travel for the duration of the fall 2021- spring 2022 semesters. For summer 2022, Occidental will expand options as circumstances allow. The International Programs Faculty Committee and Crisis Management Team plan to reevaluate this prohibition in mid-September.

See the URC’s Applications & Reports Portal for full application instructions and submission. 

Applications must be submitted four weeks before the conference, and documentation of one's acceptance as a presenter must be included.

Reports must be submitted no later than two weeks after you return from the conference.

The final day for 2021-22 AY requests is April 22, 2022.
