Travel

Awards and Deadlines

Awards of up to $600 are available throughout the year. Completed application files will be reviewed and awards made on a rolling basis until all funds have been allocated for the year. The web site will note as soon as possible when funding no longer is available.

Eligibility

All undergraduate students at Case Western Reserve University are eligible to apply for travel assistance.  However, in order to maximize the program coverage, students can receive only one SOURCE Travel award.  Preference will be given to requests made for travel to present work associated with courses, research, or creative endeavors undertaken at Case.

Commitment

Students who accept travel funding must present their work at Intersections: SOURCE Symposium & Poster Session.

Travel Funding Application
Mentor Support Form for Travel Funding

A complete travel application consists of: (1) student completion of the travel application form and (2) mentor completion of the Support Form.  SOURCE recommends that you send the link to the Mentor Travel Support Form to your project mentor.  SOURCE typically responds to 5-7 business days after complete travel applications are submitted.
