David Lavallee Student Travel Fund

Open for application each semester. The purpose of this program is to help undergraduate and graduate students cover the costs of traveling to regional and national scholarly conferences or exhibitions to present, exhibit, or perform their scholarly work during the winter, spring, summer or fall semesters. Funding for this program is available due to the generosity of former Provost David Lavallee and friends of the College. The Provost will review applications and make award determinations.

To apply to this scholarship students must complete the conditional application for Conference Travel Funding that auto populates when Conference Travel Funding is selected in the General Application.

In order for the funds to disburse to your student account, you are required to submit the official letter from the organizer accepting your work for presentation and a copy of receipts.

Who is eligible?
1. Applicant must be a current, matriculated, and registered SUNY New Paltz undergraduate or graduate student, with tuition and fees paid.
2. Undergraduate applicants must be juniors or seniors. (Please note conference and travel dates must occur prior to graduation)
3. Applicants must have a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.0 at the time of the application.

“Note that travel to/from internships, student teaching assignments, residencies, or conference attendance without presenting are not eligible for funding through this program.”
