Please note that in order to receive preferred rates when booking your room you need to identify yourself as a participant of the Midwest Probability Colloquium at Northwestern University. Participants who receive financial support from the conference should pay their hotel bills and submit the receipts and those for other expenses together with the Visitor's Expense Report within 30 days for reimbursement up to the amount of the financial support.
We have applied a grant from
the National Science Foundation to provide financial
to graduate students, younger investigators, and researchers without alternative sources of
financial support for attending the conference. Typically we can supplement travel and lodging
expenses in the $300-$500 range per participant, depending on priority, need, and the number of
requests for financial assistance.
All requests for financial assistance should be sent by email to the local conference organizer
Professor Elton Hsu on or before September 10. You must register online and indicate on the
registration form that you would like to receive financial support. Other factors being equal,
the funds will be distributed according to chronological priority.
If you are a current graduate student, you need to confirm you status by asking your academic
adviser to send a brief letter of reference by email to the local organizer.
For reimbursement, mail your valid
receipts and the Visitor's
Expense Report within 30 days to
Reimbursement Processing, Department of Mathematics, Northwestern University, 2033 Sheridan Road,
