Cadet Research-Related Travel

The VMI Undergraduate Research Initiative provides funds to cadets for research-related travel during the academic year and during the summer. Preference will be given to cadets who will be presenting their research at a conference. However, funds may also be awarded to cadets to conduct research in the field or to attend conferences, workshops, or short courses.

Proposals will be accepted on a rolling basis during the fall and spring semesters and during summer research periods (i.e. during SURI). Proposals should be submitted at least two weeks prior to the travel date so that adequate time is available to review the proposal and make a funding award.

To request funds for Cadet Research-Related Travel, complete the application form below and email the form to Leslie Joyce (joycelh@vmi.edu) in the URI office. Your faculty advisor must also submit a letter or email of support coincident with this application. This letter must address the availability of other possible funding sources (e.g. your department).

If you will be presenting at MARCUS or NCUR, please send notice to Leslie Joyce by email. Funding for travel to these conferences will be managed as a group.
