PCSA Reimbursement Instructions

The Postdoctoral Conference Support Award (PCSA)

PCSA funds are used to pay the postdoc's registration fee to support the presentation of their work at a conference.  Membership fees are not supported by this award and the award maximum is $500.  

Upon notification of the award, postdocs are asked to complete an acceptance form, to communicate with their department about their award, and to complete a TAR.

To request a PCSA reimbursement from the Office of Postdoctoral Affairs (OPA), business officers need to provide OPA with the following: copies of the postdoc's Travel Expense Statement and a copy of the KFS statement showing the postdoc’s reimbursement. Please clearly indicate the postdoc’s name and KFS account numbers on all copies and forward these documents to the attention of Blessing Enekwe in the Office of Postdoctoral Affairs - Graduate School by email (, by fax (x4-9305), or by campus mail (2125 Lee Building).
