Conference Support

Student Conference Presentation

Funds are provided to assist undergraduate student presentations of research and creative projects at scholarly meetings. Partial funding will be provided up to a maximum of $300, with the remainder expected of the student or department. Documentation must be provided to show that the project has been accepted for presentation and the student is presenting. Students supported through this program are also expected to participate in the UNK Student Research Day held during the spring semester. 

Students may receive only one URCA dissemination grant award per year. This includes NCUR, so a student who receives an URCA dissemination grant will not receive URCA support for presenting at NCUR.  

The application for travel funds must include:

1. The Dissemination Grants applicant form found here.
2. The abstract or paper submitted for consideration as a presentation.
3. An acceptance letter or other evidence that the project has been competitively selected for presentation.

Please submit the completed application to the Office of Undergraduate Research & Creative Activity – Conrad Hall Room 115 – at least one month prior to the conference.

NCUR
The Office of Undergraduate Research & Creative Activity coordinates UNK student participation in the National Conference on Undergraduate Research.  Students who are interested in attending NCUR must complete the internal form and receive approval from URCA prior to applying to NCUR.  The form can be found here.
