The IEOR Department provides a travel and expense budget of $1000 per year to PhD students who passed the qualifying exam. This amount is to be used for travel and related expenses to academic conferences approved by the faculty advisor.
1. The travel budget will reset every July 1st. That is, the $1000 travel budget will cover July 1st to June 30th, following our fiscal year.
2. Unspent balance of the PhD travel budget cannot be carried over to the next year.
3. The travel budget is only granted to students who passed the qualifying exam. Students who have not taken the exam or other situations may petition to the PhD committee for consideration. Students should email Dr. Jay Sethuraman and Ms. Jenny Mak for consideration.
