How will travel funding be administered for HQP?

MEOPAR will provide funding for one investigator and one HQP per project. Please check with your supervisor/PI to see if you will receive funding to attend the ATM & ASM.

MEOPAR will send the funding to each project, and you will be reimbursed from your project's account at your university. The funds will be sent to the projects by award letter after the ASM. Funds will be based on shared accommodations. Laura can connect you with other HQP who are looking to share a hotel room.

If I will not receive funding from my project, can I attend?

It may be possible for you to attend! First, please check with your PI as you may have been allocated funding. If not, your PI may have project funding available for you to attend.

MEOPAR is also offering a limited number of travel grants to HQP who do not have project funding to attend. We will send an email to HQP with details on how to apply for a travel grant.

Where can I find MEOPAR's travel policy?
