Project Funding, Presentation Funding, and Faculty Mentoring Grant

Funding/Grant Proposals Involving Travel

Currently, there is a restriction on all non-essential university-sponsored travel, which includes travel funded by UROP. UROP will consider Project, Presentation, and Faculty Mentoring Grant proposals that include travel, but if UROP selects your proposal for funding and the travel restriction is still in place at the time of your proposed travel dates, you will be required to:

    1. If feasible, delay the travel portion of your project until the travel restriction has been lifted; or
    2. Revise your budget to reallocate travel funding to another justifiable budget item (e.g., materials/supplies, stipend, etc.); or
    3. Remove the travel costs from your budget (i.e., return that portion of funding to UROP).

Please note that even if UROP funds a proposal that includes travel, you must receive explicit permission from UROP before you actually travel.  Please be aware that the UH travel guidelines may change at any time to become more or less restrictive; utilize the links below for the latest update on COVID-19 in relation to travel and research at UH.

Presentation Venue Eligibility

At this time, UROP will consider Presentation Funding Applications for virtual conferences, performances, exhibits, competitions, etc.
