The Caroline '67 and David D'Antonio Student Travel for Excellence Fund
See sidebar for application information/link
SUNY Oneonta encourages undergraduate student participation in research and creative activity across the academic disciplines, along with local, regional and national dissemination of such scholarship. The College at Oneonta Foundation raises and administers gifts and grants to enhance the academic status of SUNY Oneonta. Through generous gifts from Caroline '67 and David D'Antonio, an annual total of $30,000 has been made available to assist undergraduate and a limited number of graduate students with expenses incurred for professional travel.
Full- and part-time students in any academic discipline are eligible to apply for and receive awards for travel to professional conferences/meetings. Funding is not intended for travel related to fulfilling a course or program requirement, to study abroad, or to participate in other required coursework. (Conference travel related to independent study is eligible, particularly for presentation purposes.) Preference will be given to students presenting research or creative activity projects conducted with a faculty mentor(s), but this is not a requirement. However, all applicants must seek approval from a faculty sponsor prior to submitting an application (sponsors may be contacted for confirmation of support). Note: You must be enrolled as a SUNY Oneonta student at the time travel will take place in order to be eligible for this award.
