Travel Grant


There is money in the WIP budget to cover travel (for women MIT grad students in physics only) to conferences or schools for a few students. 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. WIP 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 fellowship or travel grant, etc). The WIP conference funding can also be supplementary, in cases where the student can get some but not all funding from another source. 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 a valid receipt.


The procedure to apply for funding is:
