Student Research and Travel


Associated Students Incorporated (ASI) is an on-campus organization that provides many services for students, one of which is awarding funds to support student research. They offer a substantial amount of money, which provides funding for both undergraduate and graduate student research and creative activities. The application process has become increasingly competitive, so ASI recommends that students read through each page of the application thoroughly in order to ensure it is understood completely and properly. ASI is an invaluable resource to students, so make sure to visit the ASI website to take advantage of what they offer.


Due to the impacts of coronavirus (COVID-19), the CSU Chancellor's Office has suspended all non-essential domestic and international student travel until further notice.

As a result, the Office of Student Research (OSR) will not be reviewing or awarding ASI Student Research and Travel (SRT) Grants for a conference or research-related travel until further notice from campus administration. However, we will continue to accept applications for Research Supplies and to Present or Attend VIRTUAL conferences only.

For students who received ASI SRT travel funding that is no longer able to travel to conferences or to conduct research due to this restriction and/or event cancellations, please work with your hotel and flight companies and conference organizers to receive a refund for your already paid travel expenses and conference registration fees. If you are unable to receive adequate refund or reimbursement, you will need to provide documentation from each source indicating that they are not able to reimburse you, along with your receipts, to the OSR. We will make every effort to process your reimbursement.


Please contact the OSR at if you have any questions or concerns
