To start, review the eligibility rules for the fund. Next, login to Workday and create a "spend authorization." This will function as your application.
A Few Things to Note:
- Your description can be a few words and your justification can be fairly brief - e.g. "conference travel" then "I'm giving a paper at the International Psychoceramics Conference in Dubai."
- Fill out one spend authorization line for each major expense, e.g. airfare or hotel. For multiple small costs use "miscellaneous."
- If you have a rough idea of a cost, it's okay if the number isn't exact. You can shuffle a modest amount of money between legitimate research and travel expenses within a single authorization.
- When your request is approved, you will receive a notification in Workday.
