Travel Grants

Student Travel Grants for Scientific Presentations:

Up to $250 to support the travel of a member or members to make a scientific presentation (oral presentation or poster) at a regional or national professional meeting. All chapters can receive at least two such grants every calendar year. More Student Travel Grants will be available to chapters based on the number of initiates as follows: for every four new initiates per year, two additional travel grants will be made available to a maximum of ten grants per chapter per year. If any abstract is not accepted for presentation at the meeting by the meeting’s organizers, then any funding from PLU for travel associated with that abstract must be returned to the PLU National Treasurer, either as the original, uncashed check from PLU, or as a separate check made payable to “Phi Lambda Upsilon”.

Student Travel Grants to Promote PLU:

Up to $250 to support the travel of a member or members to make a presentation to promote PLU (oral presentation or poster) at a professional meeting or at a University that does not have a local chapter. All chapters can receive at least two such grants every calendar year.

Neither type of grant requires a match from the chapter.
