Funding Opportunities

CSM Undergraduate Research Travel Funds, Spring 2018

The Undergraduate Research Travel fund is designed to help undergraduate students augment their research experience at CSUSM by providing support for travel to a conference at which a student's paper or poster has been accepted.

Funds are distributed on a first-come, first-served basis, until funds for the current year run out. Students may only receive one award as an undergraduate student (in order to extend the funds to many students). Group projects as well as individual projects may be funded.
