We have two forms of travel support available, as described below.
We have obtained grant funding that will provide a number of registration and travel reimbursement awards for students and postdocs to help them attend the conference. These awards will cover registration cost reimbursement for local students. For non-local students, the award will cover reimbursement of up to $1000 for registration, travel, and lodging expenses.
To apply for these awards, students should send an email to Wei Wei (weiwei at cs.cmu.edu) and Patrick Roos (roos at cs.umd.edu).
The awards will be allocated on the basis of student qualifications, need, and available funding. Awards will be made by reimbursement.
We also have funding that will provide a limited travel support (registration, travel, hotel) for the purpose of increasing diversity at SBP 2013. Support will be available to participants from underrepresented groups (racial minority, females, or participants from the social sciences, economic or managerial sciences, or biomedical research fields) to help them attend the conference and contribute to the disciplinary diversity. These awards will cover registration costs for local conference participants. For non-local participants, the award will cover up to $1000 for registration, travel, and lodging expenses. These awards are available to students, post-docs, and non-students who belong to one or more of the underrepresented groups indicated.
To apply for consideration, please send an email to Don Adjeroh (email@example.com).
The awards will be allocated on the basis of individual's need and available funding. Travel scholarships to promote diversity are awarded in the form of travel reimbursement. Travel scholars will need to submit qualifying receipts at the end of their trip.
