The travel scholarship will come in the form of a reimbursement to the student upon the student's return from the conference/meeting and only after the student has submitted all required documentation needed for reimbursement. Examples of qualifying expenses include: conference/meeting registration fees, transportation expenses, lodging expenses, meal expenses, and/or poster printing cost.
