Travel Assistance Fund

Applications are currently being accepted to the 2020-2021 Travel Assistance Program using the Travel Assistance Fund Application Materials. Please note that due to current travel restrictions, only requests for registration to virtual conferences will be awarded at this time.

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 2020 – 2021.  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 2019 and FY 2020 will not be eligible for funds from this program in FY 2021. Only one trip per person may be funded in a fiscal year, and a maximum of $800 per award will be funded.
