Travel Grants

Jump to other IT Society Websites:

We are happy to announce that we have secured funding for travel grants. We will use this money to refund the $100 deposit paid for housing, provided of course that your check was sent and deposited. Additionally, we have a small budget that we will use for additional travel grants for around 30 students. If you do not want to request additional funding then follow the instructions below to receive your $100 refund.

If you want to apply for additional travel support, then e-mail your request to and include a budget for your request. You must have original receipts for all items in your budget (except for the $100 deposit). You will then receive an e-mail indicating the amount of travel support we can provide you. If we receive requests for more support than we can provide, some of your requests may be declined.  Do not send us the original receipts until we inform you of the exact amount we can provide to you.

The deadline for completing either option is September 30, 2009.
