Travel Awards

SLAC trainees who are actively participating in SLAC (see definition of active participation) may request up to $1000 for travel funds for any academic purpose, including attending a meeting, conference, or workshop where you are not presenting. Such trainees may request additional travel funding at any time, but additional requests should include a short email justification / explanation for the travel (e.g., I am requesting additional travel funds to attend _____. I will (OR WILL NOT) be making a presentation. This travel is important for me because _____.). Additional funding requests will be granted on a first-come basis until travel funds for the year are exhausted.
