CUWiP Travel Support

We aim to make CUWiP accessible to everyone. All meals and accommodation during the conference are organized and the costs are met by CUWiP. You do not need to book or arrange accommodation on Friday or Saturday night. Travel to the conference is usually paid for by your home department. In cases where your own department, or other sources, can not cover the cost, some funds are available to provide support travel to CUWiP so hopefully no one has to miss out on CUWiP for financial reasons. Please note that travel funds are limited and will be assigned on a first-come first-serve basis as long as available. In order to access those funds, please email cuwip@memphis.edu to request travel support at the time of registration along with a statement from your department and an estimate of your travel cost.

Travel costs will typically be reimbursed after the conference. Before you book a plane ticket, or any other travel ticket costing more than $100, you must first email the cost and itinerary to cuwip@memphis.edu to receive advance permission prior to incurring the cost. Significant costs which are not pre-approved will not be reimbursed.
