Deadline: January 31, 2015

 Travel Subsidy Application Form


CARFMS has limited funds available to help defray the costs of participants who are presenting papers. The funds will be disbursed as fairly as possible depending upon the number of requests. While any participant who is presenting is eligible to apply for funding support, priority will be given to students, independent researchers and NGO representatives.

While participants may be accepted for funding support prior to the conference, we do not reimburse until after the conference and once both the application form and receipts have been forwarded. We cannot guarantee to reimburse more than 10% of reasonable costs (travel, accommodation, and registration only). Participants are expected to seek out the most economical travel and accommodation arrangements. They are also expected to seek other funding. Since we reimburse a percentage of your costs, it is necessary to submit all relevant receipts, including boarding passes for air travel.

Reimbursements will not be provided for applications that do not include the CARFMS Conference registration receipt.

Original hard copy receipts should be sent to the Secretariat at the address below.
