How much can I receive from NSM ICC?
Depending on the status of the recipient for travel and hotel, the amounts can differ. Non-active members (non-presenting) can receive up to $300 and active (presenting students) can receive up to $500.
How I do I quality as an active participant?
Active participants must give presentation of some sort at the conference (e.g. poster, talk). This must be confirmed in writing by a faculty mentor/research member/or advisor of the club in which the student belongs.
How I do I qualify as an non-active participant?
Non-active members do not present at the conferences they attend. They go rather to expose themselves to subjects of interest in their field, learn about new developments, or meet with potential faculty advisors if they intend to continue on in academia.
