Travel Assistance Fund

Funds for the 2023-2024 Travel Assistance Fund have been allocated and applications are no longer being accepted for 2023-2024. The Travel Assistance Fund Application Materials can be accessed for reference only.

The Travel Assistance Fund enables faculty to defray some of the travel costs associated with presenting scholarly outcomes at professional conferences and meetings that have been peer-reviewed, juried, or selected by the major associations or societies in their fields; it also supports travel where they will receive a major award from those organizations.

Applicants must be tenure-track, tenured, or research faculty with a full-time appointment during 2023-2024.  There is no deadline for this program; applications are accepted on a rolling deadline. Eligible faculty may receive this award for no more than two consecutive fiscal years; faculty who received a Travel Assistance Award in FY 2022 and FY 2023 will not be eligible for funds from this program in FY 2024. Only one trip per person may be funded in a fiscal year, and a maximum of $1200 per award will be funded. Applications must be submitted prior to the start date of the conference. You will be a sent a received response within 1-2 business days of submission.
