Funding proposals are reviewed on a quarterly basis. Submissions should be planned such that travel can be accomplished within 6 months of the date of the award, otherwise the award may be retracted. Awards will not be granted retroactively for travel that has already been complete – please plan accordingly and apply for funding by the admission deadline prior to your conference or meeting. Submissions outside of these dates will not be considered.
