Travel Grants for Conferences

If you are receiving travel grants from multiple sources, you must communicate with each office about all sources of funding so that the offices can submit a single hard-copy Travel & Business Expense Report and one set of original receipts to Payment Processing; failure to communicate about all funding sources will compromise your eligibility. Submit your packet with all receipts and documentation to your department first, then to the A&S-PBC, A&S-GSO, and finally the GPSG (depending on applicability).
