2006 SIGCSE Doctoral Consortium
A travel stipend will be available for all 2006 SIGCSE Doctoral Consortium participants. Each DC participant will be able to be reimbursed for up to $400 in travel expenses.
What Can Be Reimbursed
The guidelines on the ACM volunteer site (http://www.acm.org/sig_volunteer_info/travguid.html) give the following guidelines:
Original receipts are required for transportation, car rental, hotel, laundry/valet, and any other expense over $25.
Procedure for Requesting Reimbursement
To receive your travel grant, participants must submit receipts after the conference.
Send Ginger Ignatoff a cover note and original receipt(s) for at least $400. The cover note needs to tell Ginger you went to SIGCSE as part of the Doctoral Consortium, and that you are including your receipt(s). You must ensure that you include the address where to send the check (she says it is surprising how many people will forget to do that) plus your email in case accounting has a question. The ACM volunteer travel guidelines apply (the url for it is http://www.acm.org/sig_volunteer_info/travel.html). Generally, ACM requires a receipt for all expenses $25 or more, and there is no reimbursement for a meal that is part of the conference itself.
Send the cover letter and receipts to this address:
