Undergraduate Travel Grant - Suspended till further notice

Undergraduate Travel Fund

The undergraduate research travel fund is designed to allow students to explore research opportunities that might otherwise be out of reach due to funding issues. The fund primarily supplies travel grants for undergraduate students who wish to attend a conference to present research results, but can also award grants for students who require travel accommodations to engage in research-related activities including, but not limited to, attending conferences, workshops and conducting interviews.

To be considered, the student must demonstrate how their project will impact both their scholarship at Bentley and the greater Bentley community. Examples of deliverables include:

  • A research paper or article
  • An essay about the experience submitted to the fund committee after project completion for publication on the one of Bentley University’s websites
  • A presentation to the Bentley community
  • An educational art installation on campus

Applications are considered by the Undergraduate Research Travel Fund committee, which consists of members of the Valente Centre Advisory Board and (associate) deans of Business and Arts & Sciences.
