Student Scholar Travel Fund

The Student Scholar Travel Fund (SSTF) provides funds for students who have academic work away from DU that has been accepted to present at an academic conference or meeting. In order to be considered for funding, your travel should focus on your academic research and presentations, as opposed to personal goals, career development, and networking. You may only receive one travel grant per academic year.

You may request up to $1,000 for approved reimbursable expenses related to their travel. Examples of eligible expenses include:

  • travel
  • accommodations 
  • meals
  • conference registration

The SSTF does not fund service learning programs, DU courses, lessons or student stipends. The SSTF will not pay for off-campus study programs or travel that has already been completed.

All receipts must be turned in within 30 days of travel.

Application information 

Applications are accepted at any time during the academic school year. The committee reviews applications on a monthly basis.
