Annual Meeting Travel Grant Program, AMTGP 2018

The AMTG program provides support for IAS Chapter members and Award winners, as well Zucker Travel Award and Design Contest Winners to attend the IAS Annual Meeting. 

The program will pay travel expenses up to $300 USD (R1-7) and up to $800 USD (R8-10) for travel to the conference. The travel allowance includes items such as visa and round-trip economy class airfare, train, bus, taxi fare etc. Receipts or invoices must be provided. The travel route should be a direct route between your residence and the conference venue, i.e. any fee for additional private trips can´t be claimed.  Travel tickets should be booked for arrival and departure dates close to the Annual Meeting. Arrival ~1 week before and/or departure ~1 week after the event is allowed, but the travel program is not responsible for the additional expenses.

Conference registration must initially be made by the grantee and then the student early bird conference registration amount will be reimbursed at the conference, independent from the de-facto paid registration fee determined by the actual registration date, type or paper submission, and hotel booking status.

Hotel room costs for 5 nights (usually two students to a room) will also be covered.  Should you choose to stay elsewhere, or for a longer period, only the cost of a shared room at the conference hotel rate will be reimbursed.  Proof of conference registration will be required to take advantage of the shared room in the conference hotel.

All grantees are kindly invited to register and take part in the CMD dinner, which is the main award presentation and social event of CMD. The CMD dinner registration will be made through the Annual Meeting Conference Registration and up to 80% of the cost of this event if applicable, will be reimbursed to grantees.

Meals during travel or at the conference are not reimbursed.

Due to budget constraints, there are a limited number of grants available this year.  Preference will be given to student grade members, CMD committee chairs, area chairs, outstanding CMD officers, outstanding chapter officers, as well as the representatives of the various chapter awards contests, and participants of the thesis and engineering contests. Should the number of applicants exceed the available funds, priority will be given to students presenting papers, as well as members of new Chapters formed since last years Annual Meeting.  Applications will be evaluated by an ad-hoc committee of CMD Travel Awards Committee.

All reimbursements are after the expense. The travel allowance, registration fee, and CMD dinner fee if applicable will be processed by IAS Administrative Staff who will require copies of receipts.  A USD check will be provided during the Annual Meeting if the travel documents are submitted by July 31, 2018.  Advance payment will not be provided.  Any conference excursions and tutorials are not reimbursed.
