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 – without receipts, you will not be reimbursed.
