Undergraduate TRAC - Travel, Research and Creativity - Grant Program

The opportunity for undergraduate students to conduct research and creative projects is a unique and rewarding experience for everyone involved.  Geneseo currently has a strong tradition of providing such opportunities for undergraduates. The TRAC Grant funds are designed to aid undergraduates in the purchasing of supplies, equipment, and other expenses they might incur in their research or creative project.  The TRAC Grant. Program will continue to further this tradition by providing worthy projects with funding.


 For 2020-21

  • TRAVEL: Undergraduate TRAC Grants may support registration costs for virtual conference presentations only
