The Office of Advanced Engineering Education (OAEE) offers travel grants for students in the Professional Master of Engineering (M.Eng) program. The travel grants are intended to help defray the expenses incurred by OAEE graduate students who are traveling to professional conferences to present papers, posters, or attend career fairs.

Students may receive each grant once during their graduate education in the M.Eng program and there are a limited number of scholarships per conference.

Grants can cover a maximum of three days of hotel, registration, and airfare costs, but exact reward details will be provided at a later date. Considerations for choosing awardees include whether or not the student is presenting, the student’s academic record, and the student’s response to the scholarship questions, among other considerations. 

Eligible Conferences:

To be eligible, students must meet the eligibility requirements: 

  • Must be an attendee, a poster presenter, or other type of presenter
