In addition, you will need to have your advisor (or department head if you do not yet have an advisor) send a letter of support to firstname.lastname@example.org by May 10, 2018. Your advisor’s letter should also describe the availability of other travel funds. This letter should be sent with subject line “support letter for [your name]”. This is very important.
