Travel

The mathematics department has limited funds allocated to support graduate student travel to present work or attend conferences and seminars of relevance to a student's educational and/or professional development.

  1. The student should first approach his or her adviser to inquire about funding through a grant held by the adviser. Please note that funding from federal grants will carry additional limitations beyond the standard University policy, such as requiring US air carriers for foreign travel, and no alcohol. More information can be found at the following link: http://www.northwestern.edu/financial-operations/policies-procedures/policies/travel.pdf
  2. The student should also seek funding from other sources, such as a hosting institution or conference organizers.

After these steps are taken, the student may apply for travel support from the mathematics department directly. The standard award is $750 per student per year, and the support is provided in the form of reimbursement.

NOTE: A student seeking travel support for a conference or seminar at which he or she has an opportunity to contribute a presentation must concurrently apply for a Graduate School Travel Grant. Applications are available at the Graduate School Website. The student may consult with the Business Administrator regarding budgetary questions on the application as necessary.
