Travel and Research Grants

Note: Our database is still in its early stages and focuses primarily on grants available to Berkeley students.

This page is intended to provide a comprehensive list of travel and research grants available to undergraduates. Whether your research hasn’t yet begun or has already been completed, there is something here for everyone. Need to travel to a conference to present your thesis? Still trying to find funds for that special project? We have the grants you need.

You can also access this list in spreadsheet format, which allows viewers to filter and sort grants according to field of study and deadline.

RESEARCH WORKSHOPS

1) “Getting Started in Undergraduate Research” (Finding a mentor, finding a program to apply to, working productively with a mentor)
