Our goal is to support as many graduate students, recent Ph.D.s, and members of underrepresented minorities as possible. We encourage you to apply for support from us (and anywhere else you can find it), and we hope that you will be able to come to the conference.

Applying for support:Financial support is available, and you are encourage you to apply for it. Just answer the questions on the registration form, and submit the form. That's all there is to it.

How much support is available for participants? This will depend on several unknowns, such as, the number of participants and the travel costs of speakers.

Deadline: May 10

Documentation: We need receipts for all housing and travel expenses. Due to tightening of both Federal and university regulations concerning the disbursement of NSF funds, we have been told that we will have to be very careful about documenting our support of non-US citizens.

All non-US citizens must show the required visa documentation in order to have their hotel and/or travel expenses paid for. US citizens must furnish Social Security Number and home address. Legal resident aliens must present their green card. Other foreign nationals must show proof of one of the following visa types:

* B-1 or WB visas with an I-94 form (Front and Back) and a Declaration Form.
* J-1 visas with an I-94 (Front and Back) and DS-2019 form, and a letter from the International Office of the hosting University stating that the Professor is eligible to be paid.
* F-1 visas with an I-94 (Front and Back) and I-20 form.
* TN visas need I-94 forms (Front and Back).
