We aim to offer support to as many attendees as possible. When you register we will ask you to provide two funding amounts. The "Total Funding Request" should be an estimate of the total amount of support you would like to receive for your travel expenses. The "Minimum Funding Request" is the minimum amount of support you would need to be able to attend the meeting. When you make a lower Minimum Funding Request, you help us to be able to offer funding to more attendees. We want to meet everyone's minimum, and hope to have enough left over to get as close to everyone's total as possible. Note: The $150 registration fee will be reimbursed. This will be charged to your credit card and then reimbursed to you after the conference. You should not include this in your calculation of funds needed.Funding Process:
When registering indicate that you would like to request funding and provide your funding amounts as described above. The deadline to request financial support is March 25th. We will evaluate all the requests and notify you of the amount of funding you will receive on April 5th. When you submit your receipts for reimbursement, you can submit up to the amount of your "Total Funding Request." We will do our best to reimburse up to that amount if we have funds left over.
NOTE: The deadline for receiving support was March 25th, but some additional travel funds may be available.
If you would like to request support please email your Total Funding Request and Minimum Funding Request to
heidi @ stat.cmu.edu. Preference will be given to those who registered prior to March 25th, but we will try to fund as many attendees as possible.
