Student Travel Request

The Dean of Academic Life is accepting applications from students seeking to present, exhibit, or perform scholarly work previously completed or expected to be completed in the 2015-2016 academic year.  The project must be authorized by a faculty member.  You should consult with that faculty member about appropriate local, regional, and national conferences or other venues where you might present or perform.

Students who are interested in applying should fill out and submit the Student Travel Request Form to Lori Flatto, administrative assistant to Michael Huber, Dean of Academic Life, along with a typed abstract describing the project.  The abstract should normally be the same one you submit to the conference and 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 the abstract. 

If you will be driving and need help computing the mileage cost, please email Ms. Flatto at lflatto@muhlenberg.edu

Requests are due no later than April 30, 2016 for travel prior to June 30, 2016.  Funds will be distributed until gone.

Depending upon arrangements, you can request an advance or be reimbursed.  Regardless of when you receive funds, you will be expected to present receipts within two weeks of attending 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 one student trip per project, even if you have submitted your work to multiple conferences.
