The Travel Grant award is a consideration from the Cockrell School of Engineering to allay research related travel expenditures for engineering graduate students. Students may have traveled to conferences, workshops or other professional development related events, all of which are considered.

Any graduate engineering student that has traveled or plans to travel between January 13, 2014 and August 31, 2014, and paid out of pocket for travel and accommodation expenditures. The award is specifically for non-reimbursed travels; to this end, receipts & proof of travel would be submitted with the application if the travel has been completed, and finalists' advisors will be contacted to further confirm travel was not fully reimbursed.

For full details, please refer to the application form
The first page has comprehensive instructions & criteria.
Collect the completed application form, a copy of your abstract/poster/other relevant materials, and proof of event registration/travel.
E-mail these items to the following address:
The deadline for this application is 5pm Friday, April 25, 2014.
