Process for conference travel funding (year round)

There are two steps to apply for conference travel funding. You should start by conferring with your advisor and receiving their confirmation that you are ready to present at a conference.  Once this is approved, please email the DGS to apply for support. A brief email request is fine, so long as it includes (1) the name of the conference, (2) confirmation of advisor approval, and (3) a very brief provisional cost estimate (to the extent known).
