Travel Grants

WISP Fall 2017 Travel Grant Winners

Previous Travel Grant Recipients


Each semester, Women in Science Programs and College of Science (CoS) departments provide $500 travel grants to female students in the CoS.  

Travel Grants have been created to narrow the gender gap for conference participation for soon to be graduates.  This grant is a one-time only award. 

Please do not apply if you have received a travel grant previously through your department or WISP
