Which sentence is grammatically accurate, "I am curious why she is traveling" and "I am curious about why she is traveling"? I use the first sentence. But, a computer program suggests a correction, which is the second sentence.

Both are grammatically correct, but the first sentence is informal. You can use either 'curious about / as to + interrogative phrase' or, informally, don't use either of them - as you did in your first sentence.
