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 ( 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.
