Travelers may request an advance for expenses they will incur on their Research Foundation-funded trip. The travel advance can be requested by completing a Travel Payment Request Form .
Requests for a travel advance should be submitted a minimum of two weeks prior to departure.
Travel advances may be granted for a maximum of $2,000. Advances are calculated based upon 100% of anticipated common carrier expenses (airfare, bus, train) and up to 80% of other anticipated travel expenses.
Travel advances can be provided to Research Foundation or SUNY employees only. Consultants and independent contractors cannot receive travel advances.
