Conference Travel

Conference research presentations create important bridges between Princeton and the world. Not only do they bring ideas that emerge here to the broader academic community. They inspire new thinking that can change the shape of education and research here. PLAS reimburses travel expenses for the attendance of one conference annually—with no special application required. However prior notification to plas@princeton.edu to obtain pre-approval is highly recommended.
