Getting to the Workshop

For those workshop attendees for whom Cornell previously offered to provide travel reimbursement from the Mellon grant, here's the explanation of the process from Nancy Bolduc in our finance office: Attendees should use per-diem for meals and provide scans of original receipts for airfare, hotel, taxi/parking, and other expenses above $75. Please fill out your information on this attached Excel spreadsheet to claim your expenses. You can send the scanned versions of all receipts together with the spreadsheet (as an Excel attachment) to Nancy Bolduc (nb299 at cornell dot edu) via email . Nancy will prepare your reimbursement, send you a copy, and ask you to approve the expenses via email. The per-diem rate will depend on where you stay and should be around $56 if it is Stanford/Palo Alto. In addition, please be aware that Cornell needs to have receipts for things like your hotel that are marked as "Paid". One item of good news is that we will NOT need W-9 forms from attendees for these reimbursements.
