The Institute of International Studies (IIS) Undergraduate Conference Travel Grant supports undergraduate students who plan on traveling to a conference to present a research project, paper, or poster on any topic related to international affairs. Students from all departments are eligible and IIS encourages applications from a wide range of disciplines. The travel grant provides opportunities for individuals to gain valuable educational experience beyond the classroom and recognizes that many UC Berkeley undergraduate students engage in research projects that may require travel to national or international conferences. Grant amounts will depend on the location of the conference (domestic or international).

A budget plan;
Confirmation of invitation or acceptance to the conference;
A letter of support from a faculty member, PI, or department advisor attesting to the academic merit of the trip.

Eligibility:

Open to any UC Berkeley undergraduate student who has completed at least one semester of study in residence at Berkeley. All majors are eligible and encouraged to apply. Students must be registered for the term in which they are planning to attend their conference and be presenting a paper or poster at the conference. Concurrent enrollment students are not eligible to apply.

Award Amount:

Grant amounts will depend on the location of the conference (domestic or international) but will generally be in the range of $300-$400 for conferences within California, $400-$600 for conferences elsewhere in North America, and up to $1000 for international conferences outside of North America.
