Frequently Asked Questions

Q1: I was awarded Travel Support to attend an International Conference held in Washington during Oct. 2012. But, I could not attend the conference due to delay in getting Visa. Can I use the above support to attend another conference to be held in Jan 2013? A1: No. The support given to one event can not be used to attend another. The researcher need to apply afresh to seek funding for another event.
Q2: I have been given travel support to attend an International Conference in Guanzhou, China during Nov. 2012. Air India does operate directly to the destination.
