A limited number of travel grants, generally $100 to $200 (up to a maximum of $500) and awarded on merit, will be available for graduate students coming from overseas, the continental U.S., or from the neighboring islands of Hawaii. Due to the limited nature of this provision, potential participants are encouraged to apply for travel assistance from their home institutions or other sources available to them.
