Tips for Estimating Travel Expenses


All miles traveled in a personal vehicle (both directions) will be calculated at 56 cents per mile (effective rate January 1, 2021). Estimate this amount and include it in your request for funding.

Items to Include

Include estimates for airfare, baggage fees, parking fees, hotel, ground transportation (taxi, Uber, subway), registration fees and any other travel related expenses. We are no longer able to support per diem or meal costs.

Maximum awards amounts are $400 for undergraduate and graduate students.

If other students are traveling to the same conference, we encourage you to carpool or share a hotel room to save expenses. In most cases, an award will not completely cover your costs.
