Frequently Asked Questions
What should I NOT do?
Do not cut and paste your conference abstract! Use layman’s language to explain your work, while stressing why it’s important to your career at DePaul University.
What about the budget narrative?
In your budget narrative, make sure you fill it out and explain where you searched for air or hotel fares. If you are renting a car, explain why it is necessary. If you are visiting a library or an archive, again explain to the committee why certain expenses are being incurred.
