Student Travel Grants for Scientific Presentations:
Up to $250 per grant may be applied for in support of the travel of a member or members to make a scientific presentation (oral or poster) at a regional or national professional meeting. The PLU grant program operates on a calendar year budget and a maximum of 20 travel grants will be awarded each year. However, each chapter is eligible for a minimum of two (2) grants per year. Individual chapters may apply for 1 additional travel grant for each group of eight (8) inductees beyond the first sixteen (16) in that year up to a maximum of 10 grants per year.
Acceptable applications will be awarded on a first-come, first serve basis. A written request should be attached to the application and sent to the National President. It must be sent both by email (without signatures) and by regular mail (to show required signatures). Click here to download an application form: Student Travel Grants Application
If an abstract is not accepted for presentation at the meeting by the meeting’s organizers, then any funding received from PLU for travel associated with that abstract must be returned to the PLU National Treasurer, either as the original un-cashed check from PLU, or as a separate check made payable to “Phi Lambda Upsilon”.
