Final thoughts and message from our official study abroad blogger: Marquis Holley.

Application for #UTampa CSSME Student Travel Funds 2015 – 2016 AY

Undergraduate and graduate student research is one form of engaged learning that the University of Tampa values. To support student engagement in professional and research activities, I am making College funds available to partially support faculty-led and independent student travel to local, regional, national, or international meetings, conferences, symposia, and workshops. Full-time faculty members and students interested in applying for funds are encouraged to apply early in the planning process. In the face of limited funding, priority may be given to students who are presenting a paper, chairing a session, or otherwise actively participating in the event.

Important: THE FORM SHOULD BE FIRST SIGNED BY THE DEPARTMENT CHAIR PRIOR TO BEING SUBMITTED TO THE OFFICE OF THE COLLEGE DEAN, PH 226 AT LEAST TWO MONTHS PRIOR TO THE PLANNED ACTIVITY.
