Request for additional travel support
The LCT consortium can sometimes award additional support for travel to conferences, summer schools, etc. depending on availability of funds. Such additional funding is generally not in the amount of full costs, but is intended as partial support, for registration costs for example, or partial travel support.
1. Contact the local LCT coordinator at your current site and request funding from local sources. Include full information about the activity, and your role (presenting a paper, for example).
2. If the local coordinator cannot provide funding from local sources, he/she may decide to apply on your behalf to the central LCT administration for available central funding.
3. Such additional support is generally available at most once during your LCT course.
4. If funding is approved, it is generally done on a reimbursement basis, following submission by you of any documentation required, such as tickets or registration receipts.
5. Reimbursement will be done as a wire transfer to the EU bank account designated by you.
