All undergraduates presenting posters or talks at annual meetings of the MAA (MathFest and the Joint Mathematics Meetings) are eligible for funding. Subject to the availability of funds, the MAA will grant a maximum of $750 in support of direct expenses incurred traveling to and attending the meeting, not including meeting registration fees (required for all participants). To ensure more equitable distribution, a maximum of one student per institution or REU will be awarded travel funding at the full amount.
Each successful applicant will be informed in advance of the meeting as to the amount of his/her grant. The awarding of a travel grant is contingent upon making a presentation at the meeting and submission of original receipts for expenses. Students who accept Travel Support are expected to participate fully in all aspects of the meetings. A list of events will be included in the letter informing recipients of their award.
Funding for air travel will be based upon a website such as Orbitz or Travelocity. Funding for mileage will be based upon a website such as MapQuest, with reimbursement not to exceed the federal Privately Owned Vehicle Mileage Reimbursement Rate as posted by the U.S. General Services Administration (www.gsa.gov). Driving reimbursement cannot exceed the cost of a standard coach airline ticket. Reasonable expenses for food, lodging, and transportation to/from airports (after car/plane expenses, not in lieu of) are allowed.
