The Division provides up to $600 toward career, training, and professional
development expenses for DBBS students during their graduate training (research
meeting, conference or career, training and development). Unallowable expenses
are: computer, computer accessories, Wi-Fi charges, software, etc. Students may request use of the Division
funds after the thesis proposal has been approved by the Thesis Advisory
Committee. Students are to complete the Career,
Training, and Professional Development Funds Form then submit to the
Graduate Student Coordinator for signature, and to confirm available balance.
Reimbursements are based on actual expenses incurred and an original,
detailed receipt for each expense must be provided.
Automobile expenses will be reimbursed at current IRS mileage
rate; gas receipts cannot be reimbursed. If mileage reimbursement exceeds the
cost of airfare, the amount of the reimbursement will be the lesser expense Students
must provide a simulation for airfare expense, to be included with corresponding
financial documents, if requesting mileage reimbursement. If the cost is
greater than $600, the additional expense must be paid by a source other than
DBBS. Travel on United States Flag carriers should be used to the maximum
extent possible and is required for all international
travel. Alcoholic beverages will NOT be reimbursed.
