I am PhD student at National Institute of Technology, Surat. One of my research papers got selected for the presentation at the International conference "96th Annual Meeting of Transportation Research Board" being held during 8th to 12th January, 2017 at Washington D.C. It is one of the most prominent and prestigious international conference in the field of transportation engineering (my research field). Only few research papers are being selected for presentation at this conference every year.
I want to attend this conference and present my research paper so that it will be a great opportunity for me to showcase my research work at such a good platform. Also it provides me an opportunity to personally meet people belonging to my research area and it will bosst up my research work and I can carry forward my research work with more enthusiasm. Also, this is the first time I am attending international conference abroad.
Total cost for travel is estimated as 1,10,000 rupees. Out of this 50,000 rupees is for air travel and remaining 60,000 rupees is for conference registration fees, VISA processing fees, boarding and lodging expenses. I could gather fund of 40,000 from my institute, friends and well wishers. I urge donors for extending the financial support and I will be grateful through the life as This means a lot to me.
I am also attaching the registration fee receipt, flight ticket and some of my pics at the conference...
Hoping for your support and wishes.NOC
