As a graduate student you may have been awarded funding to travel to a professional conference. If the funding awarded was not applied directly by the department to pay such things as conference registration or airfare, you will need to complete a travel reimbursement form to recoup your out-of-pocket expenses. Please check with your department's budget or program staff person to ensure you are providing them with any required back-up documentation. The back-up documentation will need to be submitted with the travel reimbursement form.
