Your gifts helped defray some, and in many cases, all of the travel costs for 17 individual trips. 

Students attended the Bioneers Conference, Humanity in Action’s “Social Justice in Public Health and Healthcare” Conference, the Energy Efficiency and Demand Management in a Decarbonized World Workshop, Climate Reality Leadership Corps, the Gender Race & Sexuality Undergraduate Conference, and the Society for the Social Studies of Science Conference.

In addition, we helped fund travel for students for three internships and one alternative break trip.
