Academic Opportunity Fund

Photo Source: Kit via CC,

Do you have a research opportunity that requires travel? The ASUC Academic Opportunity Fund awards grants for academic travel that enhance student access to valuable educational experiences beyond the classroom. Unlike other ASUC funding restricted to on-campus activities, the Academic Opportunity Fund subsidizes off-campus academic pursuits such as professional meetings, research conferences, academic competitions, and independent research.

Undergraduates have the highest priority for this fund, though all students are encouraged to apply. Individuals who have not received funding in the past will be given greater consideration, so this is a great opportunity for those who want to try something new.

The application is online. The deadline for the spring submission is April 24, 2015.
