Limited Travel/Accommodation Funding:

NASPAA has limited financial assistance available for travel and accommodation. This funding is only available in the event that students receive no funding from their sending institution.

If a member school is unable to offer travel assistance, the student may apply to have his or her travel expenses reimbursed by NASPAA here. The student must be able to provide an estimate of his or her travel expenses that will not be covered by his or her university.
PLEASE NOTE NASPAA WILL ONLY REIMBURSE EXPENSES — NOT COVER EXPENSES UP FRONT.  Reimbursement will be provided on condition of attendance and participation in the competition. Students participating in U.S. sites will receive checks on competition day. Students participating outside the U.S. will be reimbursed via PayPal. It is imperative that all students needing to be reimbursed create a PayPal account so funds can be transferred on a timely basis. 
NASPAA will not reimburse the student for food and beverage purchases.
The student seeking reimbursement must make all purchases by January 20, 2018 to ensure reasonable travel and lodging rates (i.e. last minute bookings that incur high costs will not be reimbursed).


To receive reimbursement from NASPAA, submit copies of all receipts by February 5, 2018.  If you plan to drive to a competition site, please provide us with an estimate of gas costs (please use IRS Standard Mileage Rate). All receipts and gas estimates should be e-mailed to by February 5.


** Reasonable expenses include coach class airfare/train/bus/rental car/gas fees and maximum one night lodging expenses in a modest accommodation (AirBNB, dorm, hostels). Those selected to receive lodging assistance may be asked to share a room if applicable.
