Travel Support

Thanks to the generosity of our sponsors, SAIL will be offering travel support to help offset the cost of travel expenses and/or provide free registration. We strongly encourage you to apply to any other sources of funding you may have available to you. Please only apply for the minimum amount needed to attend SAIL. Travel support will be issued AFTER the symposium in the form of a reimbursement. In order for expenses to be eligible, they must comply with the travel policies listed below*, and you will need to provide original, itemized receipts. Funding is limited and not guaranteed. Priority will be given to applicants with accepted work.

Please note: all meals are included with the registration fee during the days of the symposium. Meals/food/beverage will not be reimbursed and SAIL does NOT offer per diems. There are no rental cars or UBER/rideshares on the island of Bermuda. Ground transportation to/from the airport to Hamilton by taxi is approximately $50 each way. The discounted hotel room rate during the symposium is $309 per night (excluding tax and a $24/day levy/gratuity).

To apply for travel support, fill out the form here by December 20, 2019. Click here to learn about the policies for requesting travel support.
