Travel Reimbursement

We try, when possible, to help support the costs of students who have been invited to show student work or present at out of town conferences. Funding for such trips each semester is scarce, here is the process.

  • Applications will be considered for travel expenses outside of a 50 mile radius of NYC -- for such things as airfare, car rental, hotel stays, and meals. Awards range from $100 to $500.
  • You must apply IN ADVANCE to be considered. We can't accept "after the fact" requests for reimbursement. The applications have to wait for the next faculty meeting for a decision.
  • Please send your request via email to Midori Yasuda <>
  • If you have been granted an award, Midori will provide you with detailed instructions as to how to request reimbursement (providing us with original receipts, etc.). Those who do not follow her guidelines for accounting for their expenses in a timely manner may forfeit their opportunity for reimbursement.
