Financial Support

Financial support will be available to cover or partially cover the travel and local expenses of many conference participants, with priority given to graduate students, postdoctoral researchers, and participants without other means of support. To request support please make the appropriate selection on the registration page.

Original, itemized receipts are required for any expenses for which reimbursement is claimed. Any relevant documents, such as the Passport, the Visa stamp or the I-94 Form must be presented in original (not photocopies) for reimbursement. Visitors on a J-1 visa must request an approval letter from their institution before receiving reimbursement. For more information on the reimbursement of non-resident aliens please the UTK Payroll page.

Note that airfare reimbursement from NSF funds requires the use of a U.S. flag carrier (i.e., a U.S. airline).
