How to Request Funding

Procedures for requesting travel support:

All students requesting travel funding complete the same application, regardless of whether you are a single author/presenter or co-authoring projects.

Complete the CURI Student Travel Request application well in advance of your conference date to allow time to make travel reservations. Applications for 2020-21 will be reviewed on July 15, September 14, November 2, February 15 and April 12. Once the proposals are reviewed, you will receive email notification from the CURI Director indicating whether your request the amount of support you will receive (if any). You will receive a notification email within 1 week of the review date.

Arranging travel:

  • In general, you are expected to make your own arrangements for airfare, lodging, conference registration, etc. However, if it is a problem for you to incur those expenses up front, you can consult with CURI staff to see whether some reservations may be made directly through the program.
  • While you travel, KEEP ALL RECEIPTS. Receipts must be itemized meaning the receipt individually displays any/all items purchased. Without itemized receipts, you will not be reimbursed.
