COVID-19 UPDATE: At present, UNH discourages off-campus travel, and most professional meetings and conferences have been cancelled or will take place virtually. Applications for Research Presentation Grants will be considered on a case-by-case basis, dependent on the University’s mode of operation at the time of application. 1) When preparing applications, students should consult the UNH and Hamel Center websites frequently for any updates or changes. 2) Even if an application is successful, students should be prepared to change their travel plans as needed to adhere to changing University policies during the proposed travel period.
Over the years, dozens of UNH undergraduates have presented their research findings at conferences and professional meetings nationwide. If you are invited to present at an off-campus venue, you may apply to the Hamel Center for Undergraduate Research for a Research Presentation Grant. These grants support your travel expenses and conference registration fees (not including meals, lodging, or trip insurance). Award amounts vary based on available funds.
Eligibility: Applicant must be enrolled as an undergraduate at UNH at the time of application; must be presenting on research conducted while an undergraduate at UNH; and must have received written notice of acceptance to present at an off-campus conference.
Rolling deadline. Students are encouraged to submit their application promptly so that it can be reviewed and, if approved, travel arrangements can be made in a timely fashion. Awards will not be made retroactively for conference travel that has already taken place.
