CFE Travel Grants


This program is set up to support professional development opportunities with a clear emphasis on pedagogy. We will also consider requests from faculty presenting at major professional conferences on the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL) and/or innovations in their classrooms.

For academic year 2019-20, the Center for Faculty Excellence (CFE) has allocated money for fall (Sept. 1 - Dec. 31), spring (Jan. 1 – May 31), and summer assistance (June 1 – August 31).

Preference will be given to TWU tenure/tenure-track full-time faculty with a teaching appointment for AY 2019-2020; but we will also look at applications from visiting and adjunct faculty if enough funding is available. Students are not eligible to apply. Only one trip per person will be supported in a fiscal year, at a maximum of $800.

Our funds are limited, and support cannot be guaranteed. If you are unsure whether your project or event fits CFE criteria, you are encouraged to contact Dr. Jörg Waltje, Executive Director, for advice or clarification before submitting your application.

Please see the instructions and more detailed guidelines on our Travel-Fund-Form.

Include a REQUEST FOR TRAVEL AUTHORIZATION (RTA) form when sending in your application.
