  1. An email from your department or Ph.D. advisor stating exactly how much, if any, travel funding is available from all institutional sources such as your institution’s student travel fund or your advisor’s research grant/contract. Preference will be given to students who can get at least some support from other sources. If you are uncertain as to whether some funds will be available (e.g., you have or will apply for student travel funding from your institution, but have not heard back yet), please state the award amount expected, when you expect to find out, and your estimate of the likelihood that you will be awarded those funds.
  2. An itemized summary of your anticipated travel, registration, and accommodation expenses (see UMAP website for actual costs).
  3. Optionally any personal (e.g., gender, ethnicity, region of origin, and/or disabilities) or institutional characteristics (e.g., country and state/province) that would merit consideration in striving for a diverse set of funded students. This information is completely voluntary. If you leave out the information, we will just assume that you belong to the most numerous group.
