The type and extent of domestic travel and its relationship to the project should be specified. Identify destinations, if possible. Allowances for air travel will not normally exceed round trip coach accommodations. Separate projected transportation expenses from housing and food costs in contract proposals. Only persons participating directly in the research may travel on grant funds.

If foreign travel is contemplated in connection with the research, the proposal should include the names of countries to be visited, along with considerable justification as to why the travel is necessary. If provision for travel to other countries is not included in the original proposal, the funding agency must be consulted prior to the commitment of grant funds for such purposes. Notification should provide evidence that the travel is essential to the objective for which the grant was awarded. Per diem rates for foreign countries are available in the Division of Sponsored Programs Office.
