We suggest that you include in your grant budget all travel costs associated with a trip to MOSS. We can arrange for you to stay on our campus at a cost of approximately $110 per day for food and lodging. You may also choose to stay off campus, in which case costs would be dependent on your hotel choice. Per diem and mileage typically follow the UI suggested rates.
