Email confirmation

I think I applied for scholarship - but did not receive any email confirmation. Is it normal? AllForReliability (talk) 14:02, 20 September 2019 (UTC)

Hi there! Yes, we unfortunately don't do email confirmations for scholarship apps (I don't believe Podio supports that feature). I can confirm that we did receive a scholarship application from you. ~SuperHamster Talk Contribs 14:06, 20 September 2019 (UTC)

Can scholarship funds be used for...

Boarding a dog? My expenses otherwise will be approx. $350. (I'll be staying with family.) Boarding the dog (the dog!) will be around $240. Thank you! Excited to be there/see you all! JSFarman (talk) 16:17, 6 October 2019 (UTC)

Hi, JSFarman. Sorry, but scholarship money won't cover dog boarding. P.S. Hi to your doggie! --Rosiestep (talk) 16:27, 6 October 2019 (UTC)

I paid to register before I realized scholarships got free registration, can the charge be cancelled?

Dear Scholarship Committee, I didn't realize that accepting the scholarship also qualified me for free registration. I registered at the Professional level instead. Would it be possible to have that charge cancelled, or changed to a personal charge/non-work credit card? Thank you & apologies for the confusion. 15:08, 11 October 2019‎ Uncommon fritillary

Can I be reimbursed for split expenses?

If I am sharing a room with someone else who will be paying the bill (or for multiple people sharing an Airbnb), can this be submitted for a partial reimbursement by multiple scholarship recipients? thanks!--Mozucat (talk) 18:00, 17 October 2019 (UTC)

Mozucat, yes. Instructions: When you submit your receipts for reimbursement, indicate what part of the lodging expense was yours. --Rosiestep (talk) 10:24, 18 October 2019 (UTC)
