Prizes will be awarded based upon merit and the decisions will be made by a faculty committee.

  • Spring Semester: February 15

Application Criteria:

  • Recipients must be full-time matriculated undergraduate or graduate students in the College of Arts and Sciences at UVM at the time the travel occurs.
  • Prize funds must be used to attend a meeting, conference, symposium, etc., to allow the student to present his/her scholarly work, to perform or exhibit a work of art, or to advance his/her scholarly/artistic abilities.
  • Priority will be given to applicants who will have a UVM academic mentor attending the same meeting or conference. Mentors must be faculty in the College of Arts and Sciences.
  • Students applying for funding for events already attended will have lower priority than those applying for future conferences.
