Limited support from the National Science Foundation is available for participants in these meetings without grant support. First priority will go to graduate students and faculty from regional universities. Participants from other universities may be supported if funds are available.

The Cascade Topology Seminar is supported in part by a grants from the National Science Foundation and the Pacific Institute for the Mathematical Sciences. The support of these agencies is gratefully acknowledged. The Seminar has dedicated funding available to support the participation of graduate students, early career mathematicians, and members of traditionally underrepresented groups. Members of these aforementioned groups are especially encouraged to apply and attend.

Those interested in seeking funding should contact Steve Bleiler.
