Enter the total distance traveled, rate per mile/kilometer, number of meals, meal allowance per meal, and extra expenses into the calculator to determine the travel stipend.

## Travel Stipend Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the travel stipend.

TS = (D * R) + (N * M) + E

Variables:

- TS is the total travel stipend
- D is the total distance traveled
- R is the rate per mile/kilometer
- N is the number of meals
- M is the meal allowance per meal
- E is the extra expenses

To calculate the travel stipend, multiply the total distance traveled

by the rate per mile/kilometer. Then, multiply the number of meals by the meal allowance per meal. Add these two results together and then add the extra expenses to get the total travel stipend.

## What is a Travel Stipend?

A travel stipend is a predetermined amount of money provided to an individual, often a student, researcher, or employee, to cover travel expenses for a specific purpose, such as attending a conference, conducting research, or completing a work assignment. The stipend is typically used to cover costs such as transportation, accommodation, meals, and other travel-related expenses. The aim is to alleviate the financial burden of travel and enable the individual to focus on the purpose of their trip.

## How to Calculate Travel Stipend?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Travel Stipend.

- First, determine the total distance traveled (D).
- Next, determine the rate per mile/kilometer (R).
- Next, determine the number of meals (N).
- Next, determine the meal allowance per meal (M).
- Next, determine the extra expenses (E).
- Finally, calculate the Travel Stipend using the formula: TS = (D * R) + (N * M) + E.
- After inserting the variables and calculating the result, check your answer with the calculator above.

**Example Problem : **

Use the following variables as an example problem to test your knowledge.

total distance travelled (D) = 250 miles

rate per mile/kilometer (R) = $0.50

number of meals (N) = 3

meal allowance per meal (M) = $15

extra expenses (E) = $50
