“attending the NCRC gave me the chance to present my research to interested students and professors, such as Dr. Vincenzo Bollettino, Director of the Resilient Communities Program at the Harvard Humanitarian Initiative. Third, attending the NCRC also provided the opportunity to learn more about career and graduate school options, as the NCRC organized workshops with academics and other professionals. Presenting at the NCRC was an incredibly valuable activity, and it wouldn't be possible without the support of the UC Davis Travel Award.”  - Brian Lee, Economics


The Undergraduate Travel Award program is made possible through funding from the Office of Research and the Office of Undergraduate Education.
