Claim back Conference/Travel/Research Expenses

Scholarship reimbursement request (Word, 98KB)

If your scholarship provides an allowance for conference, travel, or research expenses you must claim for these by completing this form and either dropping it off or sending it into the Scholarships Office.

Original receipts and invoices must be supplied: photocopies will not be accepted. Whenever possible, it is preferred that travel funded by a scholarship is arranged through the Orbit Corporate Travel office on campus.

If you paid for any expenses in a foreign currency with a credit card, you must also attach your credit card statement showing the conversion rate and the actual amount you were charged in New Zealand dollars.

If you are attending a conference you will also need to attach confirmation of your registration.

Payment Dates

If you are receiving a scholarship by monthly instalments you will get paid by direct credit into your bank account on the evening of the second Tuesday of each month, for that month. For instance, a scholarship payment for the month of November will be paid on the evening of the second Tuesday of November and is drawable on the Wednesday.
