Support request

Every effort will be made to provide financial support to participants who have no alternative sources of funding. Preference will be given to graduate students, recent PhDs, and underrepresented groups. Please notice that funds are limited. We encourage participants to seek inexpensive options regarding their travel expenses and to book their hotel at the Hilton Garden Inn Stony Brook according to these instructions.

In order to request support, please register, and indicate that you are requesting funding. Participants requesting funding must register no later than December 2, 2022. We will contact participants on the week of December 5, 2022, to inform whether their request for support has been approved. 

In case your request for financial support is approved, please follow the directions received with the confirmation support letter (to be sent by email on the week of December 5, 2022).

Please be advised that according to U.S. immigration laws, individuals who enter the U.S. and wish to receive financial support for travel-related expenses should enter on an F-1, B-1/B-2, WB/WT, or J-1 visa; however, certain limitations pertaining to financial support apply. We advise you to contact your local U.S. embassy or U.S. consulate to inquire which visa rules (pertaining to financial support) apply to your country. For information regarding visa requirements, click here.
