For the immersion period in Pittsburgh, in the U.S., the CMU Portugal Program expects to provide support for the plane trips between Portugal and Pittsburgh, and an International Master-Level Mobility Grant, for each inRes team member, to cover living expenses. The financial support will be available for the six weeks stay, in a total value of close to 2,500 Euros, for 2014. There is no need for the presentation of receipts. The participants will incur all other expenses in Portugal and in the United States.
To receive the Mobility Grant, a contract will have to be signed by each inRes team member. At the end of the inRes, each participant must submit a one-page report, describing the experience and the activities that were carried out.
