In the first reporting document, the student should describe the goals of the project and methodology, as well as any results obtained or progress made on the creative work. This document should also outline the next steps for the project as well as an updated timeline. If challenges to the progress of the work have developed, they should be identified and explored in this reporting document. Please be prepared to upload this document as a pdf or Word document. 

Students who are interested in presenting at the Florida Undergraduate Research Conference are encouraged to apply for a FURC Travel Award. The Office of Undergraduate Research and Inquiry will pay for registration, hotel accommodation (double rooms), and provide transportation from UT. Please have your abstract ready to upload. 


OURI will complete registration on your behalf. DO NOT REGISTER FOR THE MEETING IF YOU ARE REQUESTING A FURC TRAVEL AWARD UNLESS YOU HAVE BEEN TOLD TO DO SO BY OURI


Students receiving the FURC Travel Award must complete a survey of their experience at FURC.  

Funds are available from the Office of Undergraduate Research and Inquiry (OURI) to support UT students who have engaged in Undergraduate Research or Inquiry to travel to local, regional, national, or international meetings, conferences, symposia, and workshops. These funds are provided to increase the opportunities of UT students to showcase their scholarship in external venues. 

Multiple sources of funding for student travel are available on campus. Therefore, faculty and students should first seek support from their departments and Dean’s office before submitting a request for funding from OURI.  

Please note that receipts submitted for reimbursement must be itemized. Non-itemized receipts for food-related expenses may not be reimbursed. 

Students receiving travel funds must submit a brief report of their activities to their faculty mentor and to the OURI (OURI@ut.edu) within 30 days of the event.  Please include a discussion of how the experience was beneficial.  Pictures of the student presenting that can be used on OURI social media pages are also greatly appreciated.
