When should I apply for travel funds?

Students are encouraged to apply for the travel funds well ahead of time (at least six months prior to the travel deadline). This will allow sufficient time for preparing the presentation, travel, review and approval. The Abstract of their presentation must be submitted before applying for a travel fund. For the conference from September 28th to October 2nd, students will need to apply before March 1st. For this year, 2021, the first deadline is June 1st (instead of March 1st).
