The grants can be used to offset travel costs and registration fees.
Requirements and procedures to obtain US visas vary from country to country. We suggest that you check the US Dept. of State sites:
It is generally recommended to apply for a B-1 or B-2 visa. If you need a visa, it is strongly recommended that you start the process well in advance and follow the guidelines of the US Embassy in your specific country.
An invitation letter confirming your acceptance to present or participate in the conference will be issued only upon request. We encourage you to check the U.S. Dept. of State site (https://travel.state.gov/content/visas/en.html) and the U.S. Embassy where you will be applying for specific guidelines.
If you need an official invitation letter, contact the LOC at [email protected]. Please send:
• full name
• passport number
• title of proposal
• section or working group in which you will be presenting or participating in some capacity.
• Please write VISA INVITATION LETTER in the subject line of your email.
Please note that IAMCR, the LOC, and the University of Oregon will not be financially responsible if you do not obtain a visa.
The conference will be held from 20-24 June 2018 at the University of Oregon in Eugene, Oregon, USA. (https://uoregon.edu)
The University of Oregon is a residential campus, which means that it has a variety of superb living spaces. Accommodations on campus will be available from US$50-80 per person, per night, with breakfast included.
Accommodation options will also be available at nearby hotels.
