Support and Funding

Financial support is available to help defer the travel and local expenses of participants who do not have other funding for their research. Attendees can apply for support on the registration form. Requests for support must be received by April 17 to receive full consideration. We hope to announce results of such requests shortly thereafter. Graduate students, recent PhDs in geometric topology, and members of underrepresented groups in mathematics are especially encouraged to apply.

Financial support for the workshop is provided by a grant from the National Science Foundation (DMS-1764311), by the TCU College of Science and Engineering, and by the TCU Department of Mathematics.

Registration Fee

To defray local costs, a $25 registration fee will be collected online as part of the registration process. Your registration will not be official until the registration fee has been paid. Those seeking funding support can request reimbursement for the registration fee.
