Travel, Grants, and Funded Opportunities

Each Honors student may apply for grants from the Honors Program to defray the costs of participation in study abroad, international co-ops, professional conferences, and research. These grants can be used to pay for travel, hotel, conference registration, meals, and research-related materials (e.g., through a research lab -- such research materials are the property of RIT).  Reimbursement for international travel can be made only if the travel has been registered with and approved by RIT Global.


Grant funding will not exceed $500 per student (whether in one grant or as the sum of several).  To apply, please complete all three forms below and submit them to the Honors Program Office. (Global Village suite 2030 or by email to  These forms contain SSN and UID's so please use to email.  For reimbursements related to travel, we will not process any reimbursements until after the travel has taken place. Please be aware of this and if possible, wait to submit your documentation until after you return from your trip, or for more extended stays such as study abroad, until you arrive at your destination.


Approved grants will be processed as a reimbursement after original receipts for relevant expenses (e.g., airfare, travel, conference registration) have been received.  All grants must be submitted in a timely manner (timely being outlined by the Travel Policies & Procedures Manual)
