Conferences, Posters & Travel

Scholars are encouraged to present their research at a professional scientific conference or meeting each year. Approval for travel funds is conditional and requires the scholarship director's prior consent. Scholars need to request the funds for travel at least 30 days ahead of time.


As of June 1, 2021, CSU pandemic-related travel restrictions have ended. Authority and responsibility for SF State travel is now at the campus level. The travel ban has been lifted. Reasonable and necessary travel may resume according to the CSU Travel Policy including the timely submission of an ORSP Request for Authorization to Travel (RAT) form or UCORP Dometstic Travel Authorization (DTA) form before making any travel arrangements.

Travelers are responsible for complying with SF department of Public Health orders and the health orders for their destinations. Travelers should adhere to the latest travel guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
