PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT TRAVEL
MPC has limited funds available to support professional development for student members. These requests could include funds to attend workshops, courses, training sessions, or academic conferences (not covered by PAA or project-related travel).
To request professional development travel support, send an email briefly describing your request, including a budget, to email@example.com. Please email request with as much advance notice as possible.
TRAVEL GUIDELINES AND POLICIES
POPULATION ASSOCIATION OF AMERICA (PAA) TRAVEL
We are especially interested in supporting student travel to the Population Association of America (PAA) annual meeting. The highest funding priority is given to students who have a poster or paper on the program and to graduate students in the Population Studies Training Program. We also consider requests from those not on the program, with higher priority to those who have never attended PAA. Students who receive travel support are required to work at the MPC/IPUMS exhibit booth. All students are invited to the MPC reception Friday evening. Funding is only available to MPC Student Members. To receive travel funding you must be an MPC member. An email with information about how to request funds will be sent well in advance of each meeting. How to become an MPC Member.
After traveling, please submit for reimbursement your travel expenses through the University's Chrome River system. Chrome River can be accessed through myu.umn.edu --> Key Links--> U Travel --> Chrome River Login. You will need to image your itemized receipts for upload into Chrome River. For instructions how to use Chrome River review the Job Aids on the UTravel webpage. For additional help, contact Kyle Casello at firstname.lastname@example.org.
All reimbursements must be submitted within 60 days of the end of your travel.
