Travel Support for Attending BIRS Conferences and Workshops

MSRI will provide partial travel funding (up to a maximum of USD $750) for postdoc or ladder faculty members of Academic Sponsor Institutions to attend workshops at the Banff International Research Station (BIRS).  If you wish to take advantage of this opportunity you must make the request to the workshop organizer, as there are only two such travel support awards available for each conference.  The organizer is the person who will decide to whom these awards should be allocated.  If you are allocated one of these awards then let us know.  AARMS will bill MSRI and your reimbursement will come from AARMS.
