If you are awarded travel support, please note the following guidelines for your travel reimbursement. Federal regulations
require that travelers must book and ticket their flight through a U.S. carrier. This
means that your flight must either be on a US airline, or if operated by a foreign airline
the ticket must be issued by a US airline partner. Subject to this requirement, you should
endeavor to obtain the best direct route, economy, round trip fare. If you are unable to
find a ticket at an appropriate price, contact us at
email@example.com before booking. Information on our policies and guidelines for visas, travel, and reimbursements is on our
website at: http://www.ipam.ucla.edu/visitors/policies.aspx. We strongly suggest you
review this information as needed.
