The Fine Print: ·
- $500 per student per year is the maximum funding available from the Director of Undergraduate Research. Search for additional funding from other sources to cover the rest of the cost of your trip.
- We use a reimbursement system. This means that you must spend the money first and then be reimbursed.
- If you do not have a credit card or do not want to use yours, your faculty advisor can pay and be reimbursed for your expenditures.
- You may borrow a Roanoke College credit card from the Business Office. However, you may not spend above the approved amount.
- Unfortunately, we cannot give you a travel advance.
- Please direct all questions about this procedure to email@example.com.
