CPG prioritizes payment for registration for scientific events and daily allowances over airline tickets.

The assistance provided is preferably complementary in nature. CPG expects interested parties to seek resources from other funding sources.

Evidence of the use or search for additional resources strengthens the request for assistance.

CPG prioritizes helping qualified events with Qualis. In cases of non-qualifying events, the student and advisor must describe characteristics that could qualify them. Due to resource limitations, better qualified events take priority.

Daily fees and registrations already covered by other sources will not be paid.

CPG will not finance event participation solely with posters or abstracts.
