Dear Student Travellers,
I'm writing to let you know that the Dean's Office had a small pool of additional travel monies leftover from this fiscal year and the department has decided to give you these funds to use towards your conference costs. In addition to the $500 cash advance that you were awarded, an additional $208.75 will be issued to each of you, totalling $708.75.
Nice. I like Rice's habit of giving me more money.
