Travel Grant

There is money in the GWIP budget to cover travel for a few women MIT grad students in physics to conferences (at which the student is presenting her research) or schools. This is not to take the place of standard forms of support, but rather is meant to support a student who otherwise would be expected to cover expenses out of her own pocket. GWIP conference funding will only be awarded in cases where the student has exhausted all other funding resources (ie, advisor or research group, division support, conference grant, GSC funding, etc). The GWIP conference funding can also be supplementary, in cases where the student can get some but not all funding from other sources. The funding can cover conference fees, lodging at the conference, and transportation to the conference. We will not award food or per diem money. The maximum limits are $1,000 for an international conference and $700 for a US or Canadian conference. Reimbursement can only be awarded with valid receipts.

The procedure to apply for funding is:
