Conference Travel Grant

The Conference Travel Grant (CTG) is intended to provide financial support to students in the Clemson University Honors college planning to attend, or present at, professional academic conferences related to their academic interests. Students can apply for two CTGs within one fiscal year. In order for your application to be considered, you must submit it two weeks prior to the conference start date. For more information about eligibility and approved expenses please read CTG Guidelines.

Conference Travel Grant Application - To apply for a Conference Travel Grant please visit ApplyWeb's Honors College Application Menu page. You must create an ApplyWeb username and password. Then, under "Forms for Currently Enrolled Studentsyou will find the link to the Conference Travel Grant application. 

When uploading receipts to the ApplyWeb system, please ensure you also upload the Student Conference Expenditure Form. This will enable you to be reimbursed for food on the Clemson University per diem rate. You will also need to upload additional receipts for other expenses, such as for travel and accommodation. If you have any questions please contact Holly Williams at

COVID-19 Restrictions

Due to ongoing travel restrictions as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, Conference Travel will only be permitted if it is essential. In general, attending a conference (without any more specific involvement) will not be considered essential travel unless you are presenting in-person, or attending virtually.


Do YOU plan to receive funds from the Honors College? You MUST set up TigerPay!

Honors students must register with TigerPay in order to receive funds from the Honors College.  (This includes all reimbursements and grants – travel, conference, research, etc.)  Eventually, all Clemson departments will be using this method for reimbursements.

Registering for TigerPay allows the Honors College to reimburse and distribute grant funds by putting the funds directly into the student’s bank account. These funds include Honors-related pre-approved purchases, and grants, such as Educational Enrichment Travel Grants and Conference Travel Grants.

Important Tips:

If you use a “” email address, you need to drop the “g” when linking the email address to your bank.

After you tap the link above, you choose your bank and depending on what bank you use, the instructions are different. With TD, for example, you log into your online banking account, then go to transfers, and find the tab that says “send money with Zelle.” Make sure you use your Clemson email with no “g,” and your personal cell number (not home) in order to register. 

The part of the registration process that links you to Clemson is your email address. This enables Zelle to be used for money transferring.

Once Clemson puts money into your account, (through Zelle) you will receive an email from Zelle notifying you.  You will not receive any notifications until there is money put into your account.

If you do not have a bank that is listed, you will have to choose that option and provide a little more information than students who do have a bank listed. If you have issues please call customer support number 1-866-839-3488.

You may call Jenny Wirtz in the Honors office at 864-656-0569 for questions related directly to the Honors College.  But we can not answer questions related to setting up your TigerPay.  Please call their support number (above) about setting up your TigerPay account.
