Travel for Research, Conferences or Creative Endeavors

The Honors Program offers travel funds to support current honors students to conduct research, present scholarly work at regional or national conferences (not including NCUR*), or carry out creative work.

Conference travel awards are available for IC Honors students to present their research and creative products/projects at professional conferences. Priority is given to those who are presenting, but students who wish to attend a conference can also request funds.

Funds are available to support travel for undergraduates who conduct research or creative works in close collaboration with an Ithaca College mentor or who undertake self-directed research/creative endeavors under the supervision of an IC mentor.

Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis.

To apply,  

  1. Describe the research activity, conference, or creative endeavor you wish to engage in. For a conference, include the name of the conference.

  2. The location and dates of travel (arrival and departure)

  3. The amount of funding you request.

  4. A proposed budget of how funds will be spent (Amount for transportation, conference registration, lodging, food, ground transportation if not driving).

Requests for travel support must be submitted and approved at least two weeks prior to travel.  Please allow adequate time for review.


The Pervi Study Abroad Grants

Thanks to the Pervi family, the Honors Program offers two Pervi Study Abroad Grants of $500.00 each year.

Honors students are invited to apply for these funds to support study abroad.

They are offered for

  • Honors students studying in London who take the Honors course London as Text.
  • Honors students participating in any study abroad experience.

Priority will be given to high achieving students who demonstrate financial need.

Please note that determination of financial need is made on the basis of each student’s FAFSA, which must be current and on file with Student Financial Services.


Write a brief proposal that includes:

  • Your name 
  • The location where you will be studying abroad
  • Describe how the funds from this grant will help you fulfill the Global Learning requirement of the Honors Program.

Each year, the deadline for individual proposals is March 1 for those anticipating studying abroad in the fall semester.

Recipients of the grant will be notified before the deposit deadline for the London Center.

Please note: If you have questions about studying abroad or finding a location that fits you, use this link www.ithaca.edu/oip/studyabroad/forms.
