UNC undergraduates are eligible to apply for funding from OUR in order to present their original research at professional conferences (Conference Travel Funding). They are also able to fulfill a Carolina Research Scholar Program requirement by presenting at a professional conference. Please use the following guidelines to determine whether or not the conference you plan to attend would be considered a “professional conference.” If you feel that your conference does not meet these criteria but is still a “professional” conference for some reason, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
