We have ample funding to support student travel, and would like to see a large student attendance at the conference.
In order to apply for financial support related to CGO 2012 travel, we ask that you email the following materials to adamwwelc at gmail dot com:
- A resume
- A cover letter containing a description of research interests
- A statement from the student’s advisor confirming the student’s eligibility and recommending that the student attend CGO
- An estimate of all travel costs to be reimbursed (qualified expenses are listed below) – the decision on whether to reimburse the expenses and the actual amount (possibly lower than requested) will be determined by the CGO’s organizing committee after evaluating all the submitted applications.
In order to receive the reimbursement you will have to fill out the reimbursement form (which we will provide at a later time) and provide ORIGINAL receipts for all qualified expenses. We will only be able to reimburse the following expenses: airfare, hotel, car rental, gas if there is a rental car, parking, meals (max $56/day), conference registration, abstract fee, internet service/phone if staying in the hotel. The actual payments will be made by check after the conference is over.
