of the research project.
2. Priority will be given to students who have not previously received funding for travel to that event. Prior funding does not eliminate a student from consideration, but places that student at the bottom of the list.

4. Every effort will be made to ensure that a fair distribution of students is selected across and within academic departments and programs.
