Phase 1 Report - Conference Funding?

Postby redmath » Thu May 09, 2019 9:51 am

For the phase 1 report, it asks for outside funding information. I have received money from my advisor and conference organizers for various conferences that I've attended this year. I emailed SMART and they said 'I don't know' followed by an email that said 'my supervisor said to put it', so these small one time payments have to be included.

Do I lump these together by funding source, conference, or all in one? Has anyone else done this?

I think the important thing is that you report all of the funding and name all of the sources. (I am assuming SMART's intent is to make sure nobody accidentally received funds they from sources that they shouldn't have). How you list it probably doesn't matter that much as long as the info is all there, so I think any of the ways you mentioned would be valid. If it were me, I would list it by source, and then in the explanation for each one list the conference and the amount. If there is a lot of conferences and a lot of sources, if would probably also be okay to list it all in one and attach a spreadsheet showing the breakdown per conference and source.
