Student Travel Support

Travel support is available to undergraduate and graduate schools enrolled in a physics or astronomy degree program.   Student travel and lodging arranged outside of the NSBP travel system will normally not be reimbursed. 

Travel support generally includes air travel to and from the conference city, lodging and meals at the conference.  Travel support will not include local ground transportation.  All supported students must pay the conference registration fee.

There are several steps that each student must complete before a travel award can be made.  After NSBP confirms completion of these steps a travel authorization message with further instructions will be sent via email.  Please make sure that we have a good email address and that it is one that you check frequently. 

  1. Complete the on-line registration form and remit the registration fee. (Students must be officially registered for the conference. We do offer a group registration rate for departments that want to support 5 or more of their students.)
