Dean of Academic Life


Student Travel Request

The Dean of Academic Life is accepting applications from students seeking to present a scholarly work at conferences, to exhibit, or to perform work previously completed or expected to be completed in the 2014-2015 academic year. The project must be authorized by a faculty member, and you should consult with that faculty member about appropriate conference(s) or other venues where you might present or perform.

Please note that there are many venues that might be appropriate for your presentation, including local, regional and national conferences.

Students who are interested in applying should fill out and submit the Student Travel Request Form.   If you have any questions, please contact Lori Flatto.

In addition to the completed Student Travel Request Form, please submit a typed abstract describing the project. The abstract should normally be the same one you submit to the conference, but it should not exceed 500 words. The language must be clear and precise. You will want to have your faculty sponsor review at least one draft of your abstract.

Please note that funds will be distributed until gone.  Request are due by April 30, 2015 for travel prior to June 30, 2015.

You may request an advance or be reimbursed after the conference. Regardless of when you receive funds, you will be expected to present receipts within 2 weeks after the conference.

Please note: If the project has not yet been accepted by the conference, travel support will be awarded pending acceptance.  Typically, Muhlenberg will only support at most one student trip per project, even if you have submitted your work to multiple conferences.
