  2. Students doing an oral presentation of their research at any stage.
  3. Students presenting either a paper or poster.
  4. Students attending a training or workshop essential to their research.
  5. Students attending a conference.

When applying for a presentation of a paper or poster at a conference please include the acceptance letter from the conference organizers.

To apply: Send a cover letter describing your request, how it meets the criteria for a travel award, and when you plan to graduate. Include a budget (must have a minimum amount needed), an acceptance letter from conference organizers if appropriate, and a letter from your major professor stating the importance of your request and that no funds are available to fw.gradadvising@oregonstate.edu.

Graduate School

The Graduate School also provides quarterly travel awards for students who have been accepted to present their research at a conference or meeting. Information found here. Contact fw.gradadvising@oregonstate.edu for more information on how to apply.

If a travel award is dispersed into a student account, that funding will be applied toward any balance owed to the University and then the student can request any remaining balance as a personal check.
