Award Process

·       IBPSA-USA will form a committee that rates the contributions based on quality, completeness and accuracy of the submission.

·       Scholarship reimbursements will be made at or after the conference upon submission of an expense claim with supporting receipts and certification that expenses have not been otherwise paid.  IBPSA-USA will specify the claim procedure to successful applicants. The maximum reimbursement is $1500 or actual expenses, whichever is less. Allowed expenses are travel, housing, and conference registration. IBPSA-USA will consider requests to make advance payments when after-the-fact reimbursement causes hardship.
