Student Sponsored Travel

To help cover the cost of attending the conference, students can submit for a $1000 travel stipend AFTER attending the conference. The funds for the student stipend will be paid through Clarkson University from NSF awarded ‘participant support’ funds which require that the funds be paid directly to the participant; there is not a mechanism to pay a university/center directly.

To submit for travel stipend, email Polly Tiernan at after the conference. A W9 will be required.

Important Reminder: The travel stipend is for one student per Center to attend the Biennial Meeting. Each sponsored student must present a poster for their Center. More information regarding this requirement can be found here: Poster Session


Refunds can be requested up to the advance online registration deadline Monday, July 17, 2017. All refunds have a $25 service charge. No refunds will be made after the advance registration deadline closes Monday, July 17, 2017.  Please email if you have further questions.
