Academic Travel Fund

Students walking on UTSC campus

The Academic Travel Fund supports undergraduate student travel to academic conferences, meetings and/or research activities that will enhance their own academic experience and make a clear contribution to enhancing the student experience.

The fund reimburses approved travel expenses up to $2,000. 

Project proposals will be considered three times per year.

Deadline dates for the 2017-18 academic year are:

Round 1: Friday October 13, 2017

Round 2: Friday, January 12, 2018

Round 3: Friday February 23, 2018

Additionally, students awarded funds to travel outside of Canada are required to attend a Pre-Departure Orientation Session offered through the Safety Abroad Office.

Please contact the International Student Centre at isc@utsc.utoronto.ca for information on registering for a session.

Applications for any United Nations-related trips will no longer be accepted.

This initiative is an attempt to address the financial need of students, in support of academic travel. For additional information, please see the guidelines.

All proposals must be submitted online through the Intranet before 11:59pm on the deadline date.
