  • International travel (which excludes Canada, Mexico or the Caribbean area, but includes Hawaii and Alaska) is normally limited to $1,300, whereas national travel (continental US, Mexico and most of Canada) is limited to no more than $1,000.
  • However, full funding assumes that the traveler is presenting at the function.
  • Those who are participating (as a chair, moderator, etc. with their name in the program) will be limited to 60% of the limits described above. 
  • Individuals who are only attending may receive funding up to 25% of the limits described above pending approval and budgetary constraints.
