Public thank you to the NSF for my travel-fellowship to Vienna. I didn’t receive one in the first-round, but was on the waiting list and supposedly a number of the first-choice applicants weren’t able to attend, so I got to move up in the queue. $1100 to put towards the trip, thanks to the US National Science Foundation. Fantastic. Thank you.
for a week just yet, so we are on a whole-family outing during a time of peak airplane-ticket prices.
Hopefully this will encourage others to think big about conference attendance and travel-grants. They are out there, it doesn’t hurt to apply, you never know!
