To be considered for a travel award, please (A) send a letter of application, and (B) (for students) ask your thesis supervisor to send a brief recommendation letter.
The application letter should be brief (one page) and should include:
1. your name;
2. your home institution and current position;
3. your thesis supervisor’s name;
4. a one-paragraph description of your studies and your research accomplishments and plans;
5. estimate of the travel expenses you will incur;
6. your citizenship and visa status;
7. (voluntary) indication of your gender and minority status.
Only very modest awards will be possible, partially covering travel costs and perhaps some of the living expenses during the meeting. Priority in funding will be given to students and recent PhDs, and then to researchers who do not have their own sources of funding for such a trip. Women and members of minority groups are strongly encouraged to apply.
This program of travel awards is supported by a grant from the US National Science Foundation. Air travel paid for using awards in this program must be on a US airline.
Application by email is encouraged; send the application to Slawomir Solecki, Department of Mathematics, University of Illinois, 1409 West Green St., Urbana, Illinois 61801; email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
APPLICATION DEADLINE: FRIDAY, JULY 29, 2011.
