Applications for travel funding from US participants will continue to be received until October 30, 2012. However, applications already received are under review, and travel grants will begin to be awarded to the best applicants.
Latin American participants can still submit applications, and their deadline is November 15, 2012.
Self-funded participants are welcome and can continue to register; we will close registrations as we near the school capacity.
Principal Investigator Prof. Lorena A. Barba is happy to announce the availability of travel funding to attend this fantastic advanced-training event.
The ideal applicant will be an early-career researcher in the field of wave phenomena, eager to contribute to the efforts to increase our understanding of tsunamis, storm surges and tidal phenomena. The PASI is aimed at an advanced level: early faculty, post-doctoral researchers, or advanced graduate students.
Funding will cover the cost of air travel, and a per-diem allowance of $140 for accommodation and subsistence during the stay. Accommodation is being arranged at one hotel for all participants, and students sharing a room will find the per-diem quite generous. We will help you find a roommate! (Expenses above $140 per day will have to be covered by the participant.)
We expect to award 14 of these travel grants to participants from the US, and an additional 11 grants to participants from other countries in the American continents.
