International Dissemination Travel Grant Program

During the course of the project or within one year of the completion of the project, the principal investigator (PI) for an ASHRAE sponsored research project has the option of applying for an International Travel Grant to support travel expenses to a conference outside of North America to present a paper that is related to their ASHRAE research project.  The maximum amount of the award shall be $2500. 

In order to apply for this travel grant, the PI should submit a letter to the chair of ASHRAE Project Monitoring Subcommittee (PMS) for the project.  The PMS chair should forward the letter to ASHRAE Manager of Research and Technical Services (MORTS), Mike Vaughn, at mvaughn@ashrae.org or MORTS@ashrae.net, along with a recommendation in support of the International Travel Grant. 

The letter from the PI should provide documentation on the conference, the paper that will be presented, and a breakdown of the estimated travel expenses, which may include travel, conference fees, hotel and reasonable meal costs in line with normal ASHRAE procedures.  

If the International Travel Grant is approved by MORTS, then the PI will be reimbursed for the actual travel expenses up to the approved maximum amount after submission of travel receipts.
