Graduate Program

Conference travel reimbursement

Note: The OGE conference travel fund has been exhausted for 2015-2016. No travel funds are available from OGE for travel to be completed before June 30, 2016.

If you are presenting a paper or poster at a conference, your expenses can usually be reimbursed partially by your advisor and partially by the Office of Graduate Education (OGE). The Computer Science Department and the School of Science do not offer travel funding except in rare special circumstances.

To request OGE funding, complete the form at http://www.rpi.edu/dept/grad/docs/StudentProfessionalMeetingPresentationRequest.pdf. You'll need to include a copy of your invitation letter from the conference, as well as an abstract of the paper or poster you will be presenting.

After you have completed the form, attached the required documents, and gotten your advisor's signature, send the form to the department financial manager, Pamela Murarka, at murarp@rpi.edu.

The Office of Graduate Education will fund no more than one conference per student per semester. The maximum amount the Office of Graduate Education will contribute is $250.

After you have attended the conference, submit your receipts in Concur for your reimbursement.
