Home Funding Opportunities Wilkes Center Travel Award

The Wilkes Center Travel Award (WCTA) is designed to provide graduate and undergraduate students the opportunity to present their climate science and policy research accomplishments to the academic community. The opportunity to attend a conference provides networking opportunities that may lead to future research and employment connections. This award is for a max of $500 to cover the allowable expenses listed below.

This is a one-time award, meaning students are only eligible to receive a WCTA once during their academic career. Funds are awarded on a first-come, first-serve basis.
