MET Graduation Travel Grant

Terms of Reference & Instructions

This initiative is for any Master of Educational Technology (MET) student residing outside of British Columbia who would like to travel to attend their graduation at UBC.

Funds for this program are limited, however we will do our best to accommodate requests.

GRANT REQUIREMENTS

This grant is available for students residing outside of British Columbia and offers reimbursement of airfare only (lowest economy round-trip airfare at time of travel), or the equivalent of airfare should you wish to travel by car. We will confirm lowest airfare based on www.expedia.ca and www.travelocity.ca.

The grant will not cover accommodation, meals, ground transportation, or any other costs incurred.

This is a reimbursement grant, meaning that successful applicants must first incur the costs of travel and then submit original receipts for reimbursement.

The maximum allowable is CAD$1,000 per application.

You must then submit a copy of the confirmation email with your original receipt and original airline boarding passes for all legs of your journey (photocopies will not be accepted) AND a signed Mileage & Authorized Travel Expense Claim Form to:
